Sufficient acreage is available but not within the attendance area of the unhoused students or there is an extreme density of population within a given attendance area requiring a school to serve more students on a single site. Choosing an alternate site would result in extensive long-term bussing of students that would cause extreme financial hardship to the district to transport students to the proposed school site. Geographic barriers, traffic congestion, or other constraints would cause extreme financial hardship for the district to transport students to the proposed school site.

If a school site is less than the recommended acreage required in subsection a of this section, the district shall demonstrate how the students will be provided an adequate educational program including physical education as described in the district's adopted course of study.
