District Transportation Policy
     The Newburgh Enlarged City School District’s Board of Education policy on “Transportation” requires the district to “provide transportation… for pupils in grades kindergarten through 6 who live in the City [of Newburgh] at a distance of more than 0.4 miles from the school of their attendance and all pupils in grades 7 – 12 who live in the City at a distance of more than 1.0 miles from their school.”

     This means that elementary students (grades K-6), who live in the City of Newburgh within four-tenths of a mile of the school they attend, will not have the opportunity to ride a school bus to and from school.

     Secondary students (grades 7-12), who live in the City of Newburgh within one mile of the school they attend, will not have the opportunity to ride a school bus to and from school.
