How do we provide transportation for Choice students?
Students who live in the Red Clay Consolidated School district and have chosen to attend a school that is not in their feeder pattern will be picked up and delivered to the closest established stop on an existing bus route for the school they are attending. This location is designated by the Transportation Department.
Students who do not live in the Red Clay Consolidated School District will be picked up and delivered to the closest established stop for the school attended (inside the District). This location is designated by the Transportation Department.
My child is a CHOICE student, but their stop is too far. Why can’t I have a closer stop?
Your signature on your CHOICE application indicated that it was your understanding that it will be your responsibility to transport your child to your school of CHOICE or to an EXISTING STOP on an EXISTING BUS ROUTE for that particular school.
UPDATE: AUGUST 31, 2015
Choice bus stops, not within the school’s attendance zone, will be discontinued effective:
All Elementary Schools: School Year 2016-2017
All Middle Schools: School Year 2017-2018
All High Schools: School Year 2018-2019
Transportation will be assigned within the Choice school’s attendance zone.
This does not apply to Conrad School of Science, Cab Calloway School of the Arts, or Dickinson Middle School Program, as there are no attendance zones for those schools.
