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

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

expense of the district. Transportation for a lesser distance  than  two
