I think my child is eligible for transportation but I'm told the distance is not far enough? How do I resolve this?

Over time many calculations have been done to measure distances from school to address points. We're happy to check or re-check a specific address. Please contact the Business Administrator at 978-632-1000 to arrange for this measurement. The Business Administrator, in conjunction with the Gardner Police Department, will check the distance along with any safety concerns.
