HORNELL, NY – The Hornell BOE voted to move forward on an agreement with the Pupil Transportation Safety Institute to conduct a Child Safety Zone study for the city school district Wednesday evening.
Once authorized by the Board of Education or trustees and the voters of the school district, transportation may be provided for pupils in kindergarten through 8th grade who reside within two miles of the school, and in grades 9th through 12th who reside within three miles. As it stands now, those students live too close to the school to take the bus, but if the study concludes they are passing through a hazardous area, they would immediately be eligible for transportation.
