School Transportation

Saint Anselm School children are transported under the provisions of the Ohio Fair Bus Law. The Law provides the elementary school pupils who live more than two miles from the school they attend must be transported to that school by the public school district in which they live. Only children eligible for bus service are permitted to ride the buses.

Although a parent may request, by writing a note to the bus driver, that a child rides the bus with a friend, it is permitted only if seating is available and if the school district permits it.

Each of the public school districts that provide bus services determines eligibility according to its own policy. The districts that provide transportation for Saint Anselm students are:

West Geauga
Chardon
Kirtland
Newbury
Kenston

Bus transportation from the various school districts is related to funding. When districts face insufficient funding issues, busing may be dropped.

Each district notifies parents of routes and schedules in August. Kindergarten transportation varies according to the school district in which you live.
