General Routing Guidelines

Student Eligibility

Carmel Clay Schools provides transportation services for all eligible students. Students are generally eligible for transportation if they live within the attendance boundary for their assigned school.

Special Needs Students

Transportation is provided to students with special needs in accordance with Federal, State and Board of Education laws, rules, and regulations for service. Specialized transportation services will be determined as part of the students Individualized Education Plan process.

Stop Assignment

Students will receive bus assignments prior to the start of school each year or upon registration during the school year. Bus stop information can be found on the Carmel Clay Schools website by logging in to the student's or parent's myCCS account under the Transportation block. Students are assigned to bus stops by the Transportation department. Stops will only be assigned after student information has been entered in the school database or updated and has subsequently been received by the Transportation office.  Students may be required to walk up to one half mile to their bus stop. Stop locations are based on location of students served by the stop and physical conditions of the geographic area being served. Students must get on and off the bus at their assigned stop only. In certain cases, students can request to ride home on a bus other than their assigned bus, provided they have written permission from their parents/guardian and approved by their home school subject to available seat(s). Students must be at their assigned stop location five (5) minutes before the scheduled pickup time. Stop locations may change periodically based on the student population and demographics and physical conditions of the area served.
