Transportation Service Levels Information

Pupil transportation service must be provided in Ohio for students in grades K-8 who live more than two miles from their school. Many school districts also transport students in high school, as well as students who live closer than two miles from their school, but these services are optional at the discretion of the district and are not required by state law.
In 2017-18, the district will reinstate busing to sophomores at Fairfield High School. It is our hope to remove a barrier that may keep our sophomores from attending school, or arriving late to school. Many are unable to drive and are not yet eligible to receive a driver's license.
Transportation plans are designed and implemented by each district. This plan includes the designation of walk-in areas to school, identification of hazardous areas, the location of bus stops and the actual routing and planning of routes.
