Registration, Routes & Bus Passes

 

Registration, Routing and Bus Passes

Parents may register their child using a home address and an alternate address providing the alternate is due to parental custody or elementary student daycare needs only. The Transportation Department will not offer busing to students going home with other students, attending after school events or other after school functions. Bus drivers will have a passenger list to verify registered riders. All students must ride the bus they are assigned to, produce a valid bus pass, and scan on and off their bus each time. Please refer to the School Bus Code of Conduct for other important information regarding ridership.

To improve services, there will be some changes to the registration process for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year. The Transportation Department will no longer “roll over” registered bus riders.  ALL students wanting transportation services for 2020-2021 MUST register for busing.

 

All transportation requests received after May 31st will be considered only if there is room on existing routes as per Administration Procedure 560.
