This information will help you and your family get familiar with our District’s transportation service.
The District’s policy supports bussing for students that live outside of the following distances to their community schools.
Students that live within the walk limits do not qualify for school bus service.
Walk limits are outlined as follows:
- Elementary School Students K to 7 — Bussing is supplied to elementary students that live 3.2 KM or further, away from their community school.
- Middle School Students 6 to 8 (where middle school is available) — Bussing is supplied to Middle school students that live 3.2 KM or further, away from their community school.
- Secondary School Students 8 to 12 — Bussing is supplied to Secondary students that live 4.8 KM or further, away from their community school.
The District supplies bus service for all special needs students in accordance with the policy.
Once the District has accommodated all students that qualify for bussing, we will review non-qualifying requests on an individual basis and in an attempt to support families. Please see the transportation policy below for further details.
If you still have questions or further concerns, please email us at email@example.com.
School Bus Services – Registration Step 1
Families are reminded that registering for transportation is required. Registration for the 2020-2021 school year is currently closed. Information about the registration process for the 2020-2021 school year will be communicated as early as Spring 2020.
New Changes to the Online Registration for 2019-2020 school year:
Please access the On-line School Bus Registration system to secure transportation for your students.
Parents/guardians can register students for the bus via KEV School Cash online. Ensure a proper student number is used, or registration will be voided.
For late registration only:
You will be required to log in to your School Cash online account when you have completed the application form. The check out process is the same as standard school items but for most registrants the cost will be zero. It does not matter whether you complete the “Who are you purchasing this for?” box as the registration form will collect the student details.
If you do not currently have a KEV School Cash online Account, instructions are included in the SD35-StepByStep Parent Handout.
