The school unit shall provide transportation services for elementary and secondary students in accordance with Board policies and applicable laws.  The major priorities of the school unit’s transportation program are to provide safe, comfortable transportation for students in the most efficient and economical manner feasible.


a. Bus routes will be limited to State and accepted town roads, which are properly maintained and approved for safe bus travel by the Transportation Director.  All roads must have a suitable turnaround.


a. MSAD #60 buses shall not enter any public or private way that is determined to be unsafe for bus passage or does not provide adequate turnaround facilities.

b. The road shall be capable of allowing two vehicles to pass each other safely under all weather conditions with a minimum of a 15 foot wide traveled way.

c. The road must be continuously maintained and failure to maintain the road which causes more than normal abuse of vehicles will result in suspension of services until the road is restored to a drivable condition in the judgment of school officials.


If a student resides in a location removed from and inaccessible to schools or a public highway, the student's parents shall be responsible for providing transportation to a public highway or responsible for paying board for the student to be within walking distance of a school. Failure of a parent to provide transportation or board shall be considered a violation of the truancy law. (Title 20 Chapter 215)
