  • The district's Transportation Department is establishing bus routes to support students who will need transportation for exams.  

    These routes are now on the Transportation web page.  

    Buses will take students home at 12:15 PM on exam days. 

    If additional students (including those enrolled in Virtual Academy) need service for the exam week, please follow these few steps to ensure that District Transportation meets all guidelines around busing requirements: 

    • Virtual Academy students can utilize the bus provided that they would otherwise be eligible for transportation if they live in the base attendance area

    • All students must use existing bus stops posted on the WCPSS Bus Routes Page, under Southeast Raleigh

    • If you need assistance, the Southeast Raleigh Transportation Office will help determine the best stop for the student to use

    • If the district transportation office determines the stop is not walkable, Transportation will contact parents with details on our expectations for use of the best stop

    Thank you for your assistance with helping us provide safe transportation service to your students needing to use the bus the week of exams. Please contact your district office team (the Southeast Raleigh Transportation office) for assistance as needed.
