Eligbility for Bus Transportation 

The District will provide for the transportation to and from school for all students eligible under the provisions of law, including transportation (or mileage reimbursement) to students in grades kindergarten through eight attending elementary school in the District who reside more than four miles from the school in the attendance area within which they reside, special education students whose individual education plan (IEP) requires transportation and eligible private school students.

The District also develops arrangements for transportation of students who have been moved for the benefit of the District in instances to relieve overcrowding, major facility renovation, or efficiency in the use of buildings and/or staff.

The Lincoln Board of Education, in addition, at its discretion, may approve other transportation areas based upon unique circumstances and for the purpose of equalizing school enrollments and facilitating programs.

Eligibility for bus transportation for non-public school students and special education students are covered under separate policy. Students enrolled on a part-time basis shall not be entitled to transportation or transportation reimbursements.
