Is my child eligible to ride the bus?

To receive bus transportation, a student must live more than one mile from their neighborhood school

bus-stop-lookup.pngEach school has a boundary area which it serves, and transportation is not provided for students who live in one boundary area but choose to attend a school outside of it. With your address, the bus stop lookup tool​ will show which schools serve your home based on the school boundary areas and if that address is eligible for transportation services.

Students may also receive bus service if:

  • Hazards that can’t be overcome make it unsafe for a student to walk to school.
  • A disability makes it necessary to ride a bus. For these students with disabilities, a 504 plan must be in place as well as a doctor's written verification of the medical problem.
  • The student stays before or after school at a home or child care site in an area that is served by a school bus and where that address is used for enrollment purposes.
  • The student has been placed in a special program by the district, such English Language Learner, Special Education, or McKinny-Vento Homeless Education Assistance.
