Statement

Students using crutches are not allowed to board a school bus due to the high risk of serious injury.

For students that are eligible for transportation, STSWR will arrange for alternate transportation to be provided.

Procedure

When a student is injured and must use crutches to assist in mobility, alternative transportation may be arranged and provided.

A Special Request Form must be completed and submitted to the School Principal for approval by the Superintendent.

The goal of STSWR is to have alternative transportation in place within a day following approval of the special request.
