Requesting Transportation for Your Child

If you would like to request transportation services for your general education student, please click on the link below to access the Transportation Application Form. Once complete, please review the School Bus Safety information with your child.

Requesting Transportation for Your Child with Special Needs

When transportation has been determined to be a required related service on the student's I.E.P., then requests for transportation are input by either the school psychologist (current students) or Pupil Services Technicians (newly enrolling students). Transportation requests will only be processed after the registration has been completed at the school site. Once the request has been processed, the transportation department will notify the parent of the transportation details (times, location, etc.). Please note that it can take up to 7 days for transportation requests to be fulfilled.

Additional information for parents of children with special needs can be found below.
