How do I register my child for the bus?
Students register to ride the school bus during school registration. Each school will have the appropriate information for buses serving that school.
Please ensure the school your child attends has the correct address and is in FOCUS as “Has Requested to ride a District Bus” so a bus assignment can be made.
