Special Education Busing
A student can be placed on a special education bus if his IEP requires it, or if his class placement cannot be accommodated at his attendance area school. The school will send the transportation department a bus request; the Transportation Director will assign the student to a driver; and the driver will contact the parent with pickup time and start date. Parents should be aware that there is a two to three day turnaround for this process. Next-day service cannot be guaranteed. Parents should also be aware that students who ride the special education bus may need to start school a little later in the day or be dismissed a little earlier in the day to ensure efficient and safe busing.
