It is the responsibility of Potterville Public Schools to provide safe, economical bus transportation to all eligible students living in the district. Michigan schools are required by law to follow the Michigan Pupil Transportation Handbook put out by the Michigan Department of Education as well as State and Federal guidelines on pupil transportation.
Bus transportation may be provided for those students who live outside the city limits of Potterville. Bus routes are planned to provide the maximum number of students at each pick-up point with a minimum number of "turn-arounds" and "back-tracking" for each bus. Secondary students (grades 7-12) may be asked to walk up to one (1) mile to the bus and elementary students (K-6) may be asked to walk up to one-half (1/2) mile. No more than 4 stops will be made in any one mile and no stops will be made at the foot of a hill or on a curve that obscures visibility.
