Arrangements for bus transportation starts with completing the Transportation form in Final Forms. Should there be changes in transportation needs throughout the year, Final Forms should be updated by the parent/guardian.

Bus Eligibility

High School Students- Home address is more than 2.0 miles from school.

Middle School Students- Home address is more than 1.5 miles from school.

Intermediate/Primary Students - Home address is more than 1.0 miles from school.

Pioneer Students

Daily transportation to Pioneer is provided to students who have selected this option on the Transportation form in Final Forms.

In Final Forms you will have two options:

  • Bus from Galion High School to Pioneer

  • Transportation is needed to/from the student's home address. 


As a PBIS district, we believe that the school bus is an extension of the classroom. We encourage all students to abide by the expectations set forth while being transported to and from school, field trip, or sporting event. For a full look at the PBIS framework here in Galion please use the link on the left.

The slides below indicate expectation set for Primary and Intermediate students. Other building level expectations will be added soon!
