Removal of Student from Bus Route
If a student is assigned to a bus route and does not ride for ten (10) consecutive days, the student will be removed from the bus route through the De-assignment Process.
The De-assignment process will begin after a student has not ridden the bus for five (5) consecutive days.
- The Driver will complete a de-assignment form.
- The form is forwarded to the school by the appropriate Zone Transportation Office.
- The school will hold the form for five (5) days to allow school personnel time to look into why the student is not riding.
- After investigation, if the school receives no response from parents or confirms transportation is no longer required, the student's ridership code will be changed in PowerSchool.
- Once the ridership code is changed, information will automatically be sent to transportation and the student's bus assignment will be removed.
Exception: There will be no disruption in service for students with excused absences or participating in sports. These students will not be removed from the bus route.
