Bus Stop Change Request Form
Complete the Bus Stop Change Request only after reviewing the bus stop and routing criteria to determine that your situation requires special consideration.
****When making your request, please keep in mind, stop changes will not be made or reviewed during the first two weeks of school. After that time, requests will be processed in order in which they were received.****
• Generally, buses will not travel into cul-de-sacs, private roads, dead-end streets or other areas where transportation is not able to safely access. All students regardless of age or grade who reside in these areas will need to walk to the assigned bus stop. An exception to this may be a bus that is transporting individuals with disabilities.
• The bus stop may not be visible from your home. Bus stops are collector points in the neighborhood and are generally located at corners. If a parent/guardian is concerned about watching their child at the stop they will need to walk with them and supervise them at the bus stop. We strongly encourage parents/guardians to arrange for an adult to be at the bus stop whenever students are present.
• Bus drivers do not have the authority to make bus stop changes; doing so may result in disciplinary action and/or termination. A temporary exception may be made by the driver due to inclement weather or other temporary circumstances. In each case the transportation department must be notified in advance by the driver.
• Pre-school children at home cannot be a consideration in determination of bus stop locations.
District Approved Maximum Walking Distance to Bus Stops:
0.5 miles for all grades (1/2 mile)
