Each school in the Sheboygan Area School District has a set of boundaries that have been established and approved per Board of Education Policy 3541.1(b).  Use the school locator tool to determine the attendance area for your home address. Pupils are eligible for bus transportation by the school district if:

  1. They are in grades 9-12, live outside the corporate limits of the City of Sheboygan, and live more than two miles from their assigned school.  Private school students, in addition to the above regulations, must reside within the "attendance area" of the school they attend to receive transportation.
  2. They are in grades K-5 or 6-8, live outside the corporate limits of the City of Sheboygan, and live more than two miles from school, or less than two miles where there are conditions of unusual health hazard in the judgment of the the Board of Education, per recommendation of the Hazardous Review Board.  Private school students, in addition to the above regulations, must reside within the "attendance area" of the school they attend to receive transportation.
  3. They are physically, mentally, emotionally, or learning disabled children in special classes, where transportation has been recommended by a multi-disciplinary team or qualified physician.  See below.
  4. They are in grades 9-12, live within the corporate limits of the City of Sheboygan, and live more than four miles from their assigned school.  Private school students, in addition to the above regulations, must reside within the "attendance area" of the school they attend to receive transportation.
  5.

Special Education Pupil Eligibility is based on physical, mental, emotional and learning disabled attending special classes.  Transportation will be provided if determined by assessment of a student's multi-disciplinary individual educational plan team.  Students who attend an Exceptional Education Needs (EEN) Program at a school that is not his/her attendance area may receive transportation. Programs are located in schools around the school district where rooms may be available.

The English Language Learners (ELL) Program has center schools that provide services for identified students.  Students in the ELL program that live outside the center school boundaries may have bussing available.
