High School Transportation: 

Each High School Student in grades 9 through 12 is issued a METRO pass.

Student METRO Cards 

Students entering grade 9 in the fall will have an introductory meeting at their current middle school with a representative from METRO and bus passes will be distributed to the students for use over the summer and into the next school year.

Grades 10-12 METRO passes for the upcoming school year will be available for student pick up at the high schools at the start of the new school year.

Special Education Transportation: 

Special needs students are assigned transportation on an as needed basis. All students not otherwise capable of utilizing regular transportation services, and whose IEP (Individual Education Plan) indicates a need for special bussing, will be provided with transportation resources tailored to the individual needs of the student.

Special needs transportation utilizes specialized vehicles. These vehicles are generally smaller than the conventional school bus and contain such equipment as wheel chair lifts, additional restraint systems, and lower step heights. All special needs school buses are ADA compliant. Special needs routes also have driver assistants on board to help with the myriad of individual needs and possible emergency situations that may arise.

For more information concerning special needs transportation you can contact the learning strategist at your child’s school or the Special Services Department at 874-8134.
