Transportation Eligibility

General-education students
General-education students are eligible for transportation if:

  • the school they attend is 1.5 miles or more from their legal residence,

  • they live in a district-designated transportation zone or a child-safety zone, or

  • no CDTA routes are available in their area.

Special-education students
Special-education students will receive transportation when their residence is less than one and one-half (1.5) miles from their school and if their Individual Education Plan (IEP) requires it.

 

Child-care transportation
A student may be transported to and from a child-care provider if the student's legal residence and the provider's location are both one and one-half (1.5) miles or more from the school the student attends. Parents must request such transportation in writing. Applications are available at the school your child attends. Requests cannot be taken over the telephone.

 

Open enrollment and magnet schools
Students in elementary school in the district's open-enrollment and magnet-school programs will be transported on yellow buses if their open enrollment or magnet school is more than 1.5 miles from their residence.

 

Private, parochial and charter schools
Eligible private, parochial and charter-school students will be provided transportation in the same manner as public-school students if the private, parochial or charter school they attend is within the district's boundaries. Parents are asked to make such requests in writing by April 1 of the current school year to be in effect for the following school year. Click here to download the non-public transportation form for the 2016-17 school year.

The district will make every attempt to honor late transportation requests, provided their is room on that particular bus, under the open-seat law.
