Transportation

  • Welcome to the 2018-19 School Year 

    The Transportation Department continues to look for efficiencies in our systems and ways to improve our services while staying within the budget. This year there have been many changes in transportation technology. We have upgraded our radios to a system that will allow us to stay connected to the buses in all of Southern Idaho. We have also upgraded most of our cameras with units that will allow us to have better visibility in the newer buses that have higher seats. Higher seats allow more padding for student safety while on the buses. Last but not least, we have purchased routing software and it will be up and running shortly. This software has the ability to show a student’s stop and time.  All of these purchases have been approved by the state and are reimbursable so there is minimal impact on the budget.

    The Transportation Department is implementing new walk zones, road crossings, school zones, and pick-up and drop-off locations.  

    For Elementary Students:

    • The State of Idaho reimburses school districts for bus transportation to and from school for students living 1.5 miles or more from school.BCSD will go over and above the state reimbursement and will transport elementary students who live approximately .5 or more miles from school. Exceptions to this include elementary students who have to cross a major highway without a manned crossing.

     

    For Middle and High School Students:

    • BCSD will go over and above the state reimbursement and will transport middle and high school students who live approximately .75 miles or more from school with the exception of students who have to cross a major highway without a flashing light crosswalk.
    • For All Students Riding Buses:
    • BCSD will provide one fixed pick-up location in the morning for each student and one fixed drop off location in the afternoon. The morning pick-up location and afternoon drop-off location may be two different locations. We will not be able to accommodate one time changes as we cannot budget extra seats on buses for occasionally riders.
    • BCSD will transport students to the school that is in their assigned zone, exceptions to this involve daycare or drop off points and pre-kindergarten.
    • BCSD will only transport students to and from their assigned stops. The practice of allowing students to go to a fellow student’s home on the bus will not be permitted this year.
