School bus routes shall be scheduled along regularly maintained all-weather highways in such a manner as to utilize the maximum time, distance, and number of students transported. All-weather roads are defined as: hard-surfaced construction regularly maintained pavement, parked marl, etc.; 20 feet in width; shoulder clearance of five feet on each side; overhead clearance 12 feet under all weather conditions; free from obstruction, and free from bridges less than bus weight.
School buses may be directed on circuitous routes in order to avoid stops on four-lane or heavily traveled highways, or at the end of bus routes, if recommended by the Superintendent and approved by the School Board.
School bus routes shall be designated to the maximum extent possible so the need for backing or a three-point turnaround is eliminated.
In accordance with approved transportation routing standards, stops shall be designated at a location that meets standards.
