The Pointe Coupee Parish School Board shall require regular students riding school buses to meet their assigned bus at the authorized bus stop nearest their residence.  This means that students would be expected to walk a certain distance to assigned bus stops if and when the routes and/or assigned loads dictate.  Minimum walking distance for students to bus stops shall be as follows.


Elementary students (K-6)

  .5 mile

Junior High students (7-8)

  .8 mile

High School students (9-12)

1.0 mile


Certain circumstances may warrant an adjustment in the distances stated above.  Decisions on special cases shall be rendered by the Transportation Supervisor.


In cases where children live in the same household and are in different grade levels, the walking distance shall apply to that child in the lowest grade level.
