Hello! Thank you for visiting my petition! The school board in Superior Wisconsin is choosing to follow a state statute that says if a child resides two miles or further from school, they are eligible to ride the school bus. Currently school bus services are NOT available for children that live within two miles or less from the school, due to lack of state funding for transportation, according to the school board. This is a problem that MUST be changed!

Wisconsin law allows for possible danger routes to be reviewed, and if the sheriffs office deems these routes dangerous for students, the school board can provide state funded bus services. State law calls these: Unusually hazardous transportation areas (UHT Area). Currently there are more than 80 registered sexual offenders that live within the city of Superior. 61 of them, are within two miles of Northern Lights Elementary, Superior Middle School, Superior Senior High School and Great Lakes Elementary. While many parents have vehicles and are able to accommodate driving their children to and from school, many other parents do not have that option. Sexual offenders, coupled with the extreme northern Wisconsin winter weather and traffic, this is clearly NOT a safe area for our children to walk to school.
By signing this petition, I am seeking to raise awareness to the situation, and support for the change that needs to happen! If you, like myself and many others, believe our children and I.E.P. (individual education program) students need to have safe school bus transportation available within the two mile radius, please take the few minutes to show your support by signing my petition. Together we can make a difference for our children! Thank you!
