Regulation 5025: Bus Transportation Between Home and School - Special Requests

Each elementary student shall be assigned to a particular bus for transportation purposes. Whenever a child is in attendance, it will be assumed that the child will be returning home on that designated bus.

Requests to ride a bus other than the one to which the student has been assigned can be granted under the following conditions:

  1. The school should be notified in writing in the morning, signed by the parent or guardian and should indicate the child's intended destination. To avoid confusion, faxed messages are acceptable only for emergency situations.
  2. The prerogative of denial is maintained by the principal if bus discipline is a problem or if buses are overcrowded;
  3. The child should obtain a pass upon arrival at school indicating permission to ride other than the child's designated bus.

The Transportation Supervisor shall be responsible for all procedures, schedules, safety and operation of these trips.

Requests under this regulation shall not require additional expense. Normal bus service shall not be disrupted nor shall crowded or unsafe conditions be permitted as a result of these additional services.
