    Requesting Transportation for Your Child with Special Needs

    When transportation has been determined to be a required related service on the student's Individualized Education Program (IEP), then requests for transportation are input by either the school psychologist (current students) or Pupil Services Technicians (newly enrolling students). Transportation requests will only be processed after the registration has been completed at the school site. Once the request has been processed, the Transportation Department will notify the parent of the transportation details (times, location, etc.). Please note that it can take up to 7 days for transportation requests to be fulfilled.

    Additional information for parents of children with special needs can be found below.
