TRANSPORTATION

Collinsville Unit 10 School District provides free bus transportation for students through a private contractor, Laidlaw Educational Services. The district is required to transport all students living 1.5 miles or more from their schools. Free transportation services for special education students are provided if included in the student's individualized education plan. Non-public students are transported in accordance with state law. Homeless students are transported in accordance with the McKinney Homeless Assistance Act.

The Illinois State Board of Education provides a state-funded pupil transportation reimbursement program for parents/guardians to whom free bussing is not provided. For more information and eligibility criteria, see: Illinois State Board of Education.

Bus routes are determined by the contractor with district approval. Questions about student transportation can be directed to Laidlaw at 346-8605 or the district office at 346-6350.
