Reasonable Walking Distances

Florida Administrative Code 6A-3.001(3) and Board Policy 8.31 sets the reasonable walking distance as 2 miles from the school. Florida Administrative Code 6A-3.001(3) further sets the reasonable walk zone as one and one-half (1 1/2) miles between the home and the assigned bus stop.

As a courtesy, the transportation department will make every effort to shorten the walk zones as listed below, however may not be able to do so in all cases. 

Grades K – 5: up to 1/2 mile (Kindergarten parents/guardians need to be at the bus stop location with 
                                            photo ID for drop-off and pick-up).

Grades 6 – 12: up to 1 mile.

Responsibility of School District and Parents or Guardians for Students Who Are Transported at Public Expense

Florida Administrative Code 6A-3.0121(c)(1) states that the district shall inform parents, guardians, and students at least annually in writing of their responsibilities and related district policies to ensure the safe travel of their students during the portions of each trip to and from school and home when the students are not under the custody and control of the school district, including during each trip to and from home and the assigned bus stop when the school district provides bus transportation.

Sexual Offenders

Florida Statute 947.1405 requires sexual offenders whose victims were under the age of 18 and are serving a court-ordered term of community monitoring (probation) not to locate their residences within 1,000 feet of schools or school bus stops. The law also requires school districts not to place school bus stop within 1,000 feet of these supervised sexual offenders who are serving a term of conditional release. Officials do notify the School District when a supervised offender serving a term of conditional release takes up a new residence in Santa Rosa County.  In addition to supervised offenders on probation, there are registered offenders and predators, including some supervised offenders who are under no obligation with regard to their residences near schools and school bus stops. Officials do not notify the School District when registered offenders and predators take up new residence in Santa Rosa County.  Santa Rosa County Schools by practice has established an additional 400-foot buffer around the remaining registered sexual offenders and predators not subject to the conditional release.
