We provide transportation to District students in any grade level who live more than one mile from their school of attendance. The shortest, safest, and most convenient walking path shall measure distance from school. Severely handicapped students and students assigned to special programs for the handicapped may be transported regardless of their distance from school.
We have established residential stops within attendance areas. We also stop at day care centers within the attendance boundaries of the elementary schools. Day care centers are considered residential stops. We do not stop at businesses, only residential.
Dirt or gravel roads must be maintained by Douglas County or General Improvement Districts to qualify for bus service. We may end service on any road if conditions of the road could cause safety concerns for the drivers and students or cause damage to District buses.
In the event hazardous conditions exist, alternate stops may be used on days that buses are unable to make regular stops. The Transportation Department will attempt to inform parents by telephone, television, or radio announcements regarding the time and location of alternate stops if they are to be used.
Elementary bus routes will be posted in the local newspaper the week before school starts. Here are the proposed routes for the 2016-2017 school year:
Parents or Guardians
Parents or guardians can access bus stop information, along with school zoning information from our "Infofinder i" website.
Administrative staff can use the Infofinder Le website to access bus stop (or trip) information, create field trip requests, etc.
Bus route schedules can also be obtained by calling the School or the Transportation Department.
