Board Policy EEA includes the following: "District students in grades K-8 are permitted to be transported to the District elementary schools and the middle school on existing bus routes scheduled to transport special education students provided the needs of special education students are maintained and not interrupted. Transportation services will be provided to the District’s regular education K-8 students only if no additional costs are incurred by the District.
"The District will provide transportation when practical for eligible students in grades K-8 who attend community, STEM and private schools in compliance with State law when practical. When transportation for any student in grades K-8 who attend [sic] community, STEM, and private schools is not practical by any means approved by State law, the Board may resolve to declare transportation impractical and offer the student payment in lieu of transportation.
When the District establishes a bus route to transport District students in grades K-8 to community, STEM, and private schools, then students in grades 9-12 are permitted to be transported on a space-available basis. Transportation services will be provided to the 9-12 students only if no additional costs are incurred by the District. The time, distance, or number of stops to transport the additional 9-12 students requesting transportation to community, STEM, and private schools shall not be increased."
