Transportation

  • To maximize student ridership, families will be required to apply for transportation services for the 2020-21 school year. The application process will be open to all eligible elementary, middle school, and high school families.

    In order to uphold safety guidelines and ensure distancing on bus routes, transportation services for high school students will be approved using a space available application process. Services will be assigned by available space per route and availability may vary. Priority for high school transportation will be assigned to freshman and sophomore students.

    Please submit an application for each eligible student in your household by August 6 to request transportation services. If approved for transportation, siblings who live in the same household and attend the same school will be assigned seating in the same bench seat. Transportation will be provided for qualified students with disabilities who have special transportation designated on their IEP or 504 plan, as well as students who qualify for applicable services under the McKinney-Vento Act or our English Language Development program.

    Families will be notified before the beginning of the 2020-21 school year if their student has been approved for transportation services. If the student does not follow safety guidelines or use assigned transportation services routinely, transportation services can be withdrawn.

    Space-available riders will not be granted access until all eligible riders are accounted for. All transportation service options are subject to change in order to uphold safety guidelines.
