Currently, school bus transportation is provided to all students who live more than 2 miles from their school. 1.5 miles is identified as a reasonable walking distance to a bus route for students who are eligible to ride a school bus. Please be aware that the Duval County School Board policy is in compliance with what is required by state law. State law establishes a two mile limit before transportation is provided.
Transportation for students participating in magnet, choice, special programs, and exceptional education programs is provided under specific guidelines. Transportation is not guaranteed for magnet students who apply after the magnet application deadline.
Parents of kindergarten students should tag their child with his/her name, school attending, bus number(s) and bus stop.
Each parent/guardian of a kindergarten student is being asked to complete aform at their school to make a preference about dismissal. Some parents may choose for their child to be met by someone at the bus stop, and some may allow their child to walk home. All bus drivers are being instructed to transport only those kindergarten students for whom they have a copy of theform from the school. Parents will be expected to transport their kindergarten student home if they have not filled out a form with the preference for their child.
