Southeast of Saline Special Education (SPED) Route Program

  • We have a SPED school bus, mini van and a Suburban that transport our students back and forth to their specific schools every day.  They pick up students and drop them off or pick them up at Southeast of Saline as well as a few different schools in Salina.

    The SPED buses do NOT run on days that Southeast of Saline classes are canceled due to inclement weather or other unforseen reasons.  If a guardian decides to take their student to school when SES has canceled, there will be no mileage reimbursements.
