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 students 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)(e). "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 practical route on maintained public on maintained public roadways or over existing pedestrian facilities capable of meeting the requirements listed in ORS 332.405 (4).
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 area on record with the Oregon Department of Education.
