How is the distance to school determined?
The Transportation Department has a computerized mapping system that determines the distance to school for each student. If there is a question, a Transportation Staff member will walk the distance with a measuring device to verify the measurement. The distance is calculated from the center of the street in front of the residence driveway to the safest, most direct point that the student will enter the school's campus. The measurement does not include the resident's personal property, not the schools property.
