AN  ACT to amend the education law, in relation to the transportation of
  children attending pre-kindergarten; and repealing certain  provisions
  of such law relating thereto

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

  Section 1. Paragraph a of subdivision 1 of section 3635 of the  educa-
tion  law,  as amended by section 11 of part A of chapter 97 of the laws
of 2011, is amended to read as follows:
  a. Sufficient transportation facilities (including the  operation  and
maintenance  of motor vehicles) shall be provided by the school district
for all the children residing within the school district to and from the
school they legally attend, who  are  in  need  of  such  transportation
because  of  the  remoteness  of  the  school  to  the  child or for the
promotion of the best interest of such children.    Such  transportation
shall be provided for all children FOUR YEARS OF AGE AND OLDER attending
grades  [kindergarten] PRE-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,  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 fifteen miles shall be considered for the  purposes  of
this chapter to be a charge upon the district and an ordinary contingent
expense  of  the district. Transportation for a lesser distance than two
miles in the case of children FOUR YEARS  OF  AGE  AND  OLDER  attending
grades  [kindergarten]  PRE-KINDERGARTEN through eight or three miles in
the case of children attending grades nine  through  twelve  and  for  a
greater distance than fifteen miles may be provided by the district with
