Secondary School Walking Zone Boundaries
Ankeny Community Schools is pleased to be able to offer a free transporation program for those who qualify. Transportation eligibility is determined by two primary factors: (1) the distance of residency to the school building which your child attends, and (2) the safest, most passable route for a child to either walk or bike as suggested by the Safe Routes to School Program.
On the maps below, residences within the blue shaded areas do not qualify for busing and are designated "walking zones."
Residences within the red shaded areas would not normally qualify for transporation, but due to lack of a safe route (sidewalks, controlled intersection devices, crossing guards, etc.) currently qualify for transporation. As infrastructure is further developed (sidewalks, controlled intersection devices, crossing guards, etc.) the areas shown in red will shrink and be designated as "walking zones." As this occurs, families in these areas will receive further notification indicating ridership eligibility/inegligibility.
