Choice Schooll Transportation

 Academy District 20 Choice School Transportation

​Academy District 20 provides transportation to designated choice programs throughout the district for students in kindergarten through eighth grade. This model of transportation was created to help parents by sharing the responsibility for delivering students to schools outside their neighborhood school attendance area. Parents may choose to bring their students to satellite stops from which their children may be transported by school bus to their choice school. Satellite bus stop locations are established throughout the district at or near neighborhood elementary schools. Contact the transportation department for a list of available satellite bus stops that service the choice school your student attends.

Choice school bus stops are not supervised areas. Parents should use normal precautions in helping their students get to and from school. In the afternoon, students return to the same satellite bus stop and should know how they are to proceed home. If the stop requires parents to meet their student, parents need to meet the bus on time. With many stops quite a distance from home, it is necessary that parents are present to receive their student. Academy District 20 is not prepared to maintain responsibility for children in buildings where stops may be located or on school buses once students have arrived at their afternoon bus stop.

Choice transportation has been designed to work as efficiently as possible. However, students may experience one or more of the following:
• ride times as long as 75 minutes each way
• mixed schools and mixed school levels
• transfer points: getting off one bus and onto another bus under the supervision of bus drivers

As with all District 20 transportation, students must be district residents who qualify for a bus ride to and from school. Students eligible for this transportation program are not entitled to use bus stops other than their assigned stop unless the parent has requested and been approved for alternate space available seating. Students are expected to comply with safe bus riding behavior. A link to bus riding guidelines will be available for review on the Parent Portal
