Why is my child, who is a magnet student, any different than a regular ed. student?

District-wide magnet students, high school academy students, alternative program students, and students in other similar programs will be routed on an arterial basis (i.e., buses are restricted to operating on main roads only, the number of bus stops is limited, and often the bus rides exceed 60 minutes).  School bus stops may be farther than 1.5 miles from the students’ residences. Parents are responsible for getting children to and from stops safely. Parent’s responsibilities are outlined in Florida Statute 1006.21(3)(a), State Board of Education Rule 6A-3.001
