    Transportation Policies

    Southland provides transportation for students that live more than 1.5 miles from their assigned school or students who are required to cross a hazardous route as defined by the Illinois Department of Transportation.  Students that live closer than 1.5 miles to Southland and students that do not need to cross a hazardous route to get to school must walk or be transported on their own. 

    All bus stops are at centralized corners, not in front of individual homes in order to make transportation as efficient as possible.  Only special education students that require special transportation are eligible for pick-up and drop-off in front of his or her home.
