The Transportation Department's mission is to provide safe, timely, and efficient school bus service for all our riders. We travel roughly the distance from Miami, Florida to San Francisco, California, and back every day. Our District covers over 400 square miles and our goal is to provide the safest and shortest routes to and from school.
Does your student qualify for busing? Per school board policy, students living further than two miles from their boundary school will be provided transportation to and from school.
- ALL 4K students have door to door pickup and drop off and may only be released to a parent or guardian that is at least 18 years of age..
- Students with special needs shall be provided with transportation, regardless of distance (students must have a supporting Individual Education Plan (IEP)).
BUS ROUTES are determined by the transportation route coordinators. The route coordinators follow the district policy when creating your students' route. Students may be grouped so that buses do not make more than five stops per mile. Group stops are determined to be most convenient for the majority of students in a neighborhood and may require elementary school students to walk up to one-fourth mile to a bus stop with middle and secondary school students walking up to one-half mile to a bus stop. Route times are subject to change due to traffic and weather, so it is important to have your student(s) at the bus stop approximately five minutes before scheduled pickup times so as to not delay the route.
BUS NOTES are REQUIRED if your student is to ride any bus other than their own. Bus notes must be approved via the office of the student's boundary school and students shall provide their note to the driver upon boarding the bus.
If your student needs after-school transportation to a Boys and Girls Club Center you must fill out a transportation request form.
Please review bus loading and unloading safety with your child. Remind your children about the dangers of the bus stop. As a bus approaches a stop, remind children to stand back until the bus comes to a complete stop and the driver has opened the student entrance door. Children should NEVER retrieve a backpack that they may have dropped without notifying the driver FIRST. If your child has to cross the street, they need to wait until the bus driver waves them across.
HAVE YOU MOVED?
If you are a public school parent and have moved, you first must call the Stevens Point School District Business Office and get your address changed in Skyward. Their number is 715-345-5456. Once it's changed in Skyward then we can process the change in transportation.
