A District Transportation Exception form may be used to request a bus stop different from the assigned stop associated with the child’s residence provided the alternative stop is in the same school attendance area as the child’s school. Such exceptions are typically requested for babysitting purposes but can be requested for a different stop in the area of the child’s home.
A completed form must be submitted at the child’s school and signed by the principal before being sent to the Transportation Office for consideration. Such factors as length and distance of runs, number of stops on a run and consideration of the terrain and road conditions are all considered in the approval or denial of an exception request. Parents will receive a letter from the Transportation Dept. indicating the approval or denial of a requested change and the effective date of the change.
