This document deals with the problem of creation or closing of school classes from the perspective of a distance indicator seldom used: the time needed to travel by road from the family home to the training establishment. The originality of this work lies in the use of a mathematical model which takes into account the randomness of students' locations to provide an indication of the variability of the optimal positions for the classes' creation/closing solutions based on a minimization of the distance-time. These problems are solved for two case studies of agricultural education in France.
