Transportation Requests

Attention Parents!

Student Safety and security is a primary concern for our District. Please be aware that as a rule, we do not allow alternate bus stops, special requests or arrangements to have students ride with friends to accommodate social or travel schedules. Notes from parents are not accepted as permission to ride or alter any District transportation schedule or stop. Due to the 11,000+ students we transport daily, it is impossible to receive and approve late notices of an emergency change. Parents are responsible for the safety of their students to and from all District bus stops appropriate to your route. The Transportation Director must be contacted and approve any change that may occur in an emergency. This is done to protect and account for each student who is eligible to ride a District School Bus. 

 

Transportation Department Responsibilities

The Transportation Department has numerous responsibilities. The department's main responsibility is safely transporting students to and from school. Other responsibilities include notifying the news media regarding school closings, scheduling field trips throughout the District, transporting students involved in athletic events, maintaining our bus fleet, training individuals and new bus drivers for the District.  Kindergarten Round-up program for new kindergarten students who will be starting school in the fall.

In order to be as efficient as possible, it is important for us to know who will require pupil transportation services. If we assume every eligible student will ride the bus we will have many more bus routes than necessary. Therefore, we ask that you help us as we plan out routes for the coming school year by letting us know whether or not you will require transportation services. To do this please complete and return a Transportation Request Form, this and other forms can be obtained by clicking the link above.
