** Important Update and Eliminated Bus Stops **

On June 20, 2024, the Board of Education determined that due to operational costs and efficiencies, including staffing, the district shall enforce the current guidelines for determining transportation qualifications.

When determining if transportation should be offered, the district measures the distance from the school using a straight-line radius, not the actual driving distance. This approach is used because bus routes are complex and go through various neighborhoods, making it impractical to calculate driving distances for each bus stop. Therefore, a radius distance is used instead.

  • Elementary school students (grades TK-5): three-fourths (¾) mile radius
  • Secondary students attending a three-year middle school (grades 6 - 8): three (3) miles radius
  • Secondary students attending a four-year high school (grades 9 - 12): four (4) miles radius

The following are exceptions to the distance radius –

  • Special education students who have required transportation services as part of their Individual Education Plan (IEP)
  • Students who would be required to cross highway 50, the American River, or the active Light Rail from their home address to school
