Special Needs Guidelines and Procedures
The following procedures have been established to ensure the safe transport of students and to best utilize resources for the good of the entire Special Needs student body requiring transportation.
Whenever safely possible, we will provide right-side of the bus curb-to-curb service. Simply put, we will pick up the student at the curb directly in front of the designated pick-up location. Conversely, we will drop off the student at the curb directly in front of the designated drop-off location. Drivers are not permitted to drive on a residential driveway with a culvert in order to provide curb-to-curb service even if the homeowner gives permission. Drivers/Attendants may assist students off the bus. However, for the safety of other students and Drivers/Attendants, we do not assist the student to and from the door during p
We are unable to accommodate address changes without an updated Transportation Supplement. With this in mind, it is your responsibility to notify the school Diagnostician to request an updated Transportation Supplement. There will be a 3-5 day process from the receipt of the updated Transportation Request Change to arrange for route changes before the student will be picked up or dropped off at the new address.
Drivers/Attendants are not authorized to handle any type of medication for the student. Notes or other papers should be put into the student’s backpack. If asked, we will deliver notes or other papers but we will not be held responsible for the loss or mis-delivery of such items. Documents of importance should be provided by you to the school directly.
