Is there bus service to the SIB Community School or do I have to drive my child to school?

For residents of Sunny Isles Beach, Miami-Dade County is providing bus service at pre-set locations. Florida Statutes and Rules of the Florida State Board of Education establish when students are eligible for transportation on public school buses.

  • Students who are attending their designated home/residence school and who live more than two (2) miles from the school will generally be eligible for transportation.  However, this rule does not apply to students in magnet/school choice programs nor to most other students who are attending a school other than their designated home/residence school.
  • Special needs students shall receive transportation in accordance with the provisions of the student’s Individual Education Plan (IEP) or “504” Plan.  However, this does not apply to students who have been enrolled in magnet/school choice programs.  All such students will receive transportation on the same basis as regular education students, regardless of what may be included in an Individual Education Plan (IEP) or “504” Plan.
