Guidelines

Eligibility

Students who are legal residents of Twin Valley School District are provided transportation to and from school as follows:

  • Students attending District operated schools.
  • Students attending approved non-public schools within District boundaries, or not in excess of 10 miles of District boundaries, in accordance with Act 372.    
  • Students attending special education classes or schools approved by the District.        

Students are permitted to ride only those buses they are assigned.  The District Transportation Office or Building Principal may grant bus passes in an emergency situation.  These exceptions are granted only upon request of the legal parent or guardian and must be approved by the above before being granted.  Normally these students will be issued a bus pass when necessary. 

Parental Responsibility

Policing bus stops and the supervision between residence and stops until the children board the bus, will be the parent's responsibility.  Parents and/or guardians are responsible for the child and their safety prior to boarding the bus in the morning and at the time the child is discharged from the bus in the afternoon.

Acceptable behavior on the bus is expected from all pupils or transportation privileges may be revoked. If this should occur, it then becomes the responsibility of the parents and/or guardians to transport the child to and from school until such time that transportation privileges are returned.

Transportation in inclement weather can lead to serious complications. Parents are responsible for obtaining the latest information on school closings, etc. as directed by the school.

Transportation problems or requested changes are not to be discussed with a bus driver. Resolution of transportation problems are made only through the District's Transportation Office.
