Sec. 556.110 - Purpose

§ 556.110. Purpose

This Part establishes guidelines and procedures for determining the existence of a serious safety hazard and applies to serious safety hazards encountered by pupils walking on or along roadways, crossing roadways and crossing railroad tracks. This determination allows for the State Board of Education to provide busing reimbursement to school districts that choose to transport pupils residing within 1-?½ miles from the school attended where conditions are such that walking, either to or from the school to which a pupil is assigned for attendance or to or from a pick-up point or bus stop, constitutes a serious hazard to the safety of the pupil due to vehicular traffic or rail crossings. Such transportation shall not be provided if adequate transportation for the public is available. (Section 29-3 of the School Code [105 ILCS 5/29-3])
