5005 - Transportation of Option Students

5005

Transportation of Option Students

 

          Due to the fact the West Point Public Schools does not provide door to door bus service, the below policy will only be enacted following the decision to provide service.

 

The board of education shall annually set the rate for transportation services for option-enrolled students.  Such transportation may only be enacted if there is mutual agreement between the school district and the parent or legal guardian of the option student.  If such agreement is reached, the stops at the option homestead will be recorded by the school vehicle operator and a billing fee will be assessed to the parent or legal guardian on an annual basis.  If two or more option students from the same homestead use school transportation, the district will charge for each trip made.  Under no circumstances will an option student(s) be provided school transportation to and from his/her homestead if the result of such transportation (1) necessitates the addition of a bus route and/or (2) increases the time necessary to run the complete bus route beyond the limit of one hour.

 

            If the option student resides within the distance of one mile of the route used to reach a homestead which is a regular bus stop of a resident student, the fee shall be set at a rate of $.___ per mile per stop.

 

            If the option student resides a distance greater than one mile but less than or equal to two miles from the route used to reach a homestead which is a regular bus stop of a resident student, the fee shall be set at a rate of $.___ for the first mile and $.___ for the additional mile per stop.

 

            If the option student resides a distance greater than two miles but less than or equal to three miles from the route used to reach a homestead which is a regular bus stop of a resident student, the fee shall be set at a rate of $.___ for the first two miles and $.___ for the additional mile, per stop.

 

            If the option student resides a distance greater than three miles but less than or equal to four miles from the route used to reach a homestead which is a regular bus stop of a resident student, the fee shall be set at a rate of $.___ for the first three miles and $.___ for the additional mile, per stop.

 

            If the option student resides a distance greater than four miles but less than or equal to five miles from the route used to reach a homestead which is a regular bus stop of a resident student, the fee shall be set at a rate of $.___ for the first four miles and $.___ for the additional mile, per stop.

 

            For distances greater than five miles from the route used to reach a homestead which is a regular bus stop for a resident student, the same formula used to determine the above quoted rates will be used to determine the fee.

 

NOTE: No fee will be assessed for afternoon kindergarten routes.
