***Due to capacity restrictions on buses in response to the COVID-19 virus, opportunities to provide transportation to open enrolled students for the 2020-21 school year will be limited.***
When students are approved to attend a school outside their regular attendance area, transportation is the responsibility of the parent and/or legal guardian. However, transportation may be provided from an existing bus stop that serves the approved school under the following conditions:
1. Students are required to register each school year for the bus service and must be re-approved to use an existing bus stop annually.
2. Space must be available on the existing bus route to receive services.
3. Parents and students understand that they will be required to present themselves to the nearest bus stop in the attendance area of the school they are open enrolling into. Bus stops will not be available in non- enrollment areas.
4. Parents accept ultimate responsibility for ensuring that their students can get safely to and from the assigned bus stop. Bus stops may be further than normal eligibility criteria for bus stops because of open enrollment status.
