Transportation is provided for those children in kindergarten through grade five who live more than one and a quarter (1.25) miles, grades six through eight who live more than two (2) miles and grades 9-12 who live more than three (3) miles from the school they attend. Eligible pupils will receive identification cards in the mail. The application deadline for private and parochial school transportation is Friday, April 3, 2017.
In accordance with Education law and Board of Education policy, all requests for transportation of children to private and parochial schools oustide the district for the school year 2016-2017 must be submitted in writing by parent, guardian, or authorized representative no later than April 1, 2016. Requests may be sent to the Bayport-Blue Point Transportation Office, 189 Academy Street, Bayport, NY 11705.
Transportation authorization is not automatic or continuous from school year to school year; requests must, therefore, be filed each year for children requiring such transportation. For those planning to apply or who have applied to a private or parochial school and are still awaiting formal acceptance, an application must be on file by Friday, April 3, 2017. This application should include each and every school (up to two) that your child/children may attend during the 2017-2018 school year. In this way, the district may include the cost for transporting your child/children in the 2017-2018 operating budget and relieve parents of this financial responsibility.
It is the policy of the School District to provide transportation to private and parochial schools no more than 15 miles from the home of the child.
