Busing Information

Busing Registration Deadline for 2021-2022 School is June 15, 2021!

Students returning to in-class learning in September MUST register for busing.

All students who were not attending in-school classes or who were not riding the bus during the 2020-2021 school year were removed from the transportation system and therefore must register to ride in September.

Urban (town) busing students and Cross Boundary busing students must re-register every year.

Video Surveillance on School Transportation Vehicles

In order to provide for the personal safety and security of students and personal property belonging to the Division, the Division supports the use of video surveillance practices on student transportation vehicles believing that such practices shall through deterrence, encourage good behavior and promote safe practices.

Student misbehavior increases the potential risk of injury or damage to property. As the behavior of students is a significant factor in the safety and efficiency of school transportation systems, the Division supports the use and implementation of video monitoring practices on student transportation vehicles as needed, in accordance with the procedures established herein.

It is important for parents to be aware that their child may at some point during the school year ride a school bus that is equipped with Video Surveillance Cameras. If you wish to know more specifics regarding this policy please follow the link to AP 182
