    Transportation - Eligibility

     

    The policy of the Wantagh Board of Education regarding transportation of public

    and  non-public school students requires that eligibility be determined according

    to the distance from the student’s legal residence to the school of attendance.

     

    Transportation is provided as follows:

     

    Kindergarten through Grade 5 — Over 1/2 mile distance

    Grades 6 through 8 — Over .88 mile distance

    Grades 9 through 12 — Over 1.24 miles distance

     

    According to State law, distance (not hazard or any other factor) is the sole

    eligibility criterion. Those desiring transportation to private or parochial

    schools must apply in writing on or before April 1 of the preceding

    school year. Transportation will be provided to eligible students the following

    September up to a distance of 15 miles.
