State statute, N.J.S.A. 18A:39-1, states:
Whenever in any district there are elementary school pupils who live more than two miles from their public school of attendance and or secondary school pupils) who live more than two-and-a-half miles from their public school of attendance, the district shall provide transportation to and from school for these pupils.
Since the distance from any home in Paulsboro to the school of attendance does not exceed these distances, Paulsboro is not required to transport most students to school.
The following are the only exceptions, and the district may provide transportation to and from school:
- Students that have a transportation requirement in his/her Individual Education Program (IEP),
- Students attending an out-of-district Interdistrict Public School Choice school, and
- Students deemed homeless by the district’s Homeless Liaison and/or those involved with the Division of Child Protection & Permanency, living outside of the Town.
