In accordance with Clearfield Area School District Board Policy 810: Transportation, all transportation arrangements that have been made for babysitting purposes must be on a five (5) day basis and must remain this way, as follows:
CHILD CARE ARRANGEMENTS
Transportation to and/or from the home of a babysitter will be provided if the following guidelines are followed:
The child-care home must be in the same attendance area that services the child's assigned school unless an exception to placement is granted and buses service the requested school from the childcare area.
After initial routes and runs have been established for the new school year, adequate seating space must be available to accommodate child-care requests. Children who legally reside along the bus route receive priority.
No added routes, route mileage or buses will be added. Children will be boarded or discharged at the closest existing stop to their childcare site.
No additional stops will be added unless the bus is passing the child-care location and an unsafe walking condition is present.
All child-care arrangements will be on a permanent five (5) day a week basis.
All child-care arrangements shall be made through the student's school in writing by the parent or guardian and authorized by the Transportation Department.
Future requests for bus changes on a temporary basis will not be honored unless the change is the result of a family emergency or related matter.
Should you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact the school district's Transportation Department at (814) 768-3905.
