The Corning-Painted Post Area School District transports more than 4,000 students to and from 20 public and private schools every day. This is done with approximately 100 buses that accumulate more than one million miles each year. The District has its own bus fleet and also contracts with four bus operators to ensure every child gets to and from school on time.
C-PP students are transported according to Board of Education policy. Elementary school students (grades K-5) are bused if they live more than one mile from a school or bus stop. Secondary students (grades 6-12) are transported if they live more than one and one-half miles from a school or bus stop. Students who are bused to school in the morning must return home on the bus unless they have parental and school office permission to do otherwise. Transportation is not provided within Corning City limits unless a student is determined by the Committee on Special Education to require it.
Parents of students who are new to the District should contact their operator (see chart below) to find out their child's bus number, as well as pick-up and drop-off locations and schedules for their children. The schedules vary for the elementary, middle and high school levels.
A School Bus Rider Manual is sent home annually in the District calendar. The manual answers most questions concerning student transportation.
