  children residing in a school district in the county of Westchester

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Paragraphs a, b and e of subdivision 1 of section  3635  of
the  education  law, paragraph a as amended by chapter 69 of the laws of

and  paragraph  e  as  amended  by  chapter 665 of the laws of 1990, are

promotion of the best interest of  such  children.  Such  transportation
shall be provided for all children attending grades kindergarten through
eight  who  live  more than two miles from the school which they legally
attend and for all children attending grades  nine  through  twelve  who
live more than three miles from the school which they legally attend and
shall be provided for each such child up to a distance of fifteen miles,

COUNTY  OF WESTCHESTER, the distances in each case being measured by the
nearest available route from home to school. The cost of providing  such
transportation between two or three miles, as the case may be, and SEVEN
OR  fifteen  miles,  AS  THE  CASE  MAY  BE, shall be considered for the
purposes of this chapter to be a charge upon the district and  an  ordi-
