and Non-Busing Areas
State law requires public school districts to provide free transportation to all students living two miles or more from their neighborhood school. Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School District provides transportation to elementary school students living 1 mile or more from their school and for middle and high school students living 1.5 miles or more from their school.
Policy 707, section 1.4 states: Walking distance, as referred to in this policy, is defined as the shortest distance from the student's residence (where the front of the property meets the street), by reasonably safe walkway, street or highway that is accessible to the public, to the curb-step or walkway at the assigned entrance of the school the student attends. If any portion of where the front of the residential property meets the street is outside the walking distance, the student will be provided busing to and from school.
