The safe transportation of our students is a responsibility the Beaverton School District takes very seriously. School Transportation Services will be provided for students to and from their neighborhood school, consistent with Oregon Revised Statute 327.043.
Transportation Eligibility is based on the distance from a student's home to their school of residence:
- Elementary Students who live more than one mile from their school of residence will be eligible for transportation services.
- Secondary students who live more than one and one-half miles from their school of residence will be eligible for transportation services.
Distance will be determined by District Transportation practice, in accordance with Oregon Administrative Ruling 581-023-0040 (1)(c). "Mile(s) from School" means the distance a student lives from school, measured from the closest, reasonable, and prudent point between the school property identified by the local board for that pupil's attendance and the property where the pupil lives. The distance will be measured over the shortest practicable route on maintained public roadways or over existing pedestrian facilities or pedestrian facilities capable of meeting the requirements listed in ORS 332.405(4); Be advised that online mapping services such as Google Maps do not measure distance to the nearest accessible point of school property and will provide measurements that are significantly different than the measurements used by the School District.
Transportation services will also be provided to students residing in a District School Board approved supplemental plan areas on record with the Oregon Department of Education. Exceptions to transportation eligibility will be provided to students requiring specialized transportation services as determined by their Individualized Education Program (IEP). See Special Education Student Transportation Web Page for more Information.
Transportation service may be provided to students attending a Beaverton School District "Options Program" (see Service Standards Web Page for Options Program Transportation Eligibility information.
Transportation services will not be provided to students attending a school outside of their local attendance area due to Administrative Student Transfer.
