School bus routes and bus stops are established based on the following criteria:
• Bus stops are to be located at a centralized location to allow accessibility to multiple students at one location.• School buses shall not deviate from the established route path, except as required due to construction or an emergency.• Transportation is not provided to students who reside within 1.5 miles from the school, unless deemed necessary by Illinois State Code. • Factors considered when reviewing bus stop appeals include: age of the student(s), number of students assigned to the bus stop, distance from the residence to the bus stop, roadway characteristics, consistency with other bus stop locations, and special needs considerations of the student(s). • The goal of the department is to provide consistency in bus stops throughout the District. Parents are encouraged to monitor children while at the school bus stop to enhance their safety and well being.
