Provide all students transportation

This petition had 691 supporters

According to district policy, students living within a mile of Shannock elementary school are not eligible for bussing and are expected to walk to and from school each day. This policy applies to all students, even as young as 5 years old! 

The students living within that 1 mile radius are expected to deal with harsh winter weather, safely navigate uncontrolled intersections, avoid potential predators, and make responsible choices all without any adult supervision. It is unrealistic to expect that small children are developmentally ready for such a task. The dangers and potential problems that could arise are FRIGHTENING! 

This purpose of this petition is to gather the support of concerned parents and community members who would like to see this policy changed. We want to see transportation offered to ALL STUDENTS so that every child can get to school and back home SAFELY.

I also want to point out that shannock is the only school in the district that does not provide transportation to all students.  I have personally witnessed half empty busses drive past my house every day.
