STUDENT TRANSPORTATION
Given the square mile size of the District, school bus transportation for students is extensive. It is not uncommon for student to ride 30-45 minutes one-way on a school bus to their school each day. As required under the State law, all students who live 1.5 miles from their school, or whose route is obstructed by hazardous circumstances according to Illinois Department of Transportation criteria, are bused to school. Given the location of the high school, it is common for junior and senior students to drive to school.
