2019-2020 New Bus Information

 

To all current bus riders that are eligible for transportation (2019-2020):

  • If your transportation eligible child will be riding the bus from the same address to the same school next year, you do not need to take action. If you need to update your bus service, please go online.
  • Up-to-date transportation information is available in your student’s Home Base/PowerSchool account. More information on Home Base is available at www.wcpss.net/student-information.
  • If your student is assigned to transportation but is not a rider, parents are to submit the online form so that we have the most up-to-date information.
  • Parents do not have to register for transportation services if their student has special transportation as a related service.

Any transportation eligible family who needs to make a change or request service for 2019-20 is requested to meet the following deadlines to ensure service on the first day of school: June 10 for Year-round calendar schools (regardless of track assignment)
