Alternative Transportation

CHANGES to your student's normal transportation plan completed here

New procedures for Alternative Transportation Requests - Please Read Carefully

___________________________________
Ohio Administrative Code 3301-83 (5) states that "Each pupil shall be assigned and required to use a specific school bus stop except in unusual circumstances as approved by the school bus owner or designee;" With the safety of our children in mind and the time required to make sure children are getting on the correct bus the new procedures for short and long term request are detailed below. A short term request requires 24 hours advance notice or Fri. by noon for Monday Changes and 48 advance hours notice for long term requests. 

While students are learning their schedules and buses in the first few weeks of school we will not be accepting Short Term Alt. Requests. If you wish to schedule a change, you may request for dates starting Sept. 5th or later with a 24 hour advance notice required or by Fri. at noon for Monday changes. In an emergency situation please call the Transportation Dept. directly at 513.272.4531.

IMPORTANT INFO:
  • Drivers cannot accept a student not assigned to their bus without permission from the Transportation Dept. office. Putting a change into Pick-up-patrol without first making a request to the Transportation Department in not sufficient.
  • Contact Transportation via the Short Term Request Form.
    • You will need your student's school ID # for the request.
