If your child is attending a daycare or babysitter, you must fill out a Transportation Request Form by Aug. 1 for busing in September.
The Board of Education chooses to provide transportation to and from school on the basis of the following distance policy:
The above mileage policy is adhered to in providing transportation to both public and non-public students attending schools within the City School District boundaries.
NFTA Bus Passes
Resident students who attend private or parochial schools outside the District and desire District Transportation to and from those schools must request such transportation by April 1 of the school year preceding the transportation need. In such cases, the District will provide NFTA bus passes.
Most bus stops are established at street corners and fire hydrants. Consistency and fairness are key standards in implementing the policy. Bus routes are revised every year based on changes in student attendance patterns as they advance to higher grades or move out of the District.
