Registering for the Bus:
Students who are eligible for school bus service must register on Infinite Campus to ride the bus. Students who are assigned to a route will receive a Bus Pass from their driver. The Bus Pass must be swiped every time a student boards or disembarks from the bus. Please do not send your student to the bus stop if they have not been approved to ride the bus.
Bus Driver Shortage:
Unfortunately, due to the current bus driver shortage, BVSD may not be able to transport all eligible students. If you are able to get your student to school on your own, we encourage you to decline bus service on Infinite Campus, in order to free up a space for a student with no other options.
After the school year begins, if there happens to be space on the bus, transportation-eligible students who initially declined bus service may request a spot on the bus by calling the Transportation Department.
Who is eligible for bus service?
- Students with special needs who have a transportation clause in their IEP
- McKinney Vento students
- Students who live outside of the walk boundary:
- Elementary (grades K-5): 1.5 miles
- Middle School (grades 6-8): 2 miles
- High School (grades 9-12): 2.5 miles
Space Available Application:
Students who are not eligible for the bus may apply, starting in August, on Infinite Campus for a Space Available seat on the bus. The Space Available program provides an opportunity for students who are not transportation-eligible to apply for a seat on a school bus, if there is available capacity. Space Available applications will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Applying for a seat on the bus via the Space Available program does not guarantee a seat on the bus. Please note, no new bus stops will be created for the Space Available program. Existing bus stops must be utilized.
