Community Consolidated School District 89 provides busing for regular-education students through Illinois Central School Bus. To qualify for regular-education busing, a student must live more than 1-1/2 miles from the school or have to cross a state-approved hazardous crossing.
For more information about special education busing, please contact the Student Services/Special Education Department.
Please read the CCSD 89 policy on Bus Conduct (Policy 500.220).
Administrative transfer policy
Some Community Consolidated School District 89 students may be bused to a school outside their neighborhood to better match enrollment with school populations.
Students living in a given school attendance area will normally be assigned to that school; however, within the administrative guidelines, the Superintendent and Board reserve the right to transfer students to schools other than the one to which a child would normally be assigned. The assignment of schools outside of those normally used in determining a student’s school are detailed in Board Policy 500:30-R.
