  children residing in a school district in the village of Tuckahoe

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-

  Section 1. Paragraphs a, b and e of subdivision 1 of section  3635  of
the  education  law,  paragraph  a as amended by section 11 of part A of

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

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
