DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP
If you choose to drop off or pick up your child in your own vehicle, please view your child's school site to determine where and how to do that safely.
Durant Independent School District believes that safety is the number one priority in our transportation service. Our buses run every morning and after school to take children to and from school and homes. The Durant Schools Transportation department travels more than 250,000 mile per year through activities and daily bus routes. Transportation offers some type of ride option for every student in our district, including transportation to all contracted daycare facilities within our school district and the Boys and Girls Club.
Students are eligible for bus service in the following orders of priority:
FIRST PRIORITY RIDERS
All students who attend their first priority elementary site and live 1½ miles from school are defined by the state as "legal riders" and will be provided bus transportation. The majority of other elementary students who attend their first priority site but reside less than 1½ miles from school will be provided bus transportation from "bus stops," which in most cases will be within a few blocks from their home.
SECOND PRIORITY RIDERS
Parents will be responsible for transporting all students who attend a second priority elementary site. If the District requests that a student attend an elementary site as a second priority student because of special education placement or to alleviate overcrowding, the District will provide transportation.
THIRD PRIORITY RIDERS
Transfer students will only be transported from the District's boundary when space is available.
