Students living less than 1.5 miles from their school, and not in an approved hazard area, may choose to apply for transportation services.

The annual cost for busing is $405.00 ($50.00 discount) for applications received on or before the July 1 deadline. The full fee is $455.00 for applications received after July 1. Late applications will not be reviewed until September 15. If space is available on the requested route students will begin riding the last week of September.
