711.1 Student School Transportation Eligibility

Harlan Community Schools (HCS) will transport all students who meet the State of Iowa guidelines according to State Code (IC 285.1). HCS will not transport students who live within the city limits of Harlan, with the following exceptions:

· Students with a handicapping condition as specified in their IEP

· Elementary/Middle School students outside a two mile radius of their school

· High School students outside a three mile radius of their school

· Students who do not have a safe access (Sidewalks) to their school, such as those who would need to cross Highway 59 or who’s nearest safe access to their school via sidewalk would exceed two miles

· A bus will stop at the old New Park school location. The reason for this stop is due to an agreement made prior to vacating New Park which stated the district would provide transportation from that point. This agreement will be reviewed each year and the Board shall have the right to discontinue this stop if they so determine.

· With the goal of lessening some traffic congestion during after school pickups at the elementary buildings, two stops will be made for afternoon routes: 1) Merrill Field 2) Therkildsen Center.

· Middle School or High School students will not be transported inside the appropriate two or three mile radius.
