Welcome! The Transportation Department is staffed by professionals serving and supporting you and your children. Drivers and office staff are dedicated to the safe transportation of the students. The Transportation Department is responsible for coordinating and staffing bus routes throughout the district, teaching bus safety to students, registering students for school bus service and contracting for transportation with Positive Connections, Anderson Bus Company and Koch School Bus Company. (Please note: As of 2012, Koch School Bus Company and Anderson Bus Company merged.)

Our goal is the safe daily journey of your student to and from school.


Prepare now for your 2017-18 Busing Needs

Preliminary bus information, based on your child’s home address, will be posted on Campus/Parent Portal by July 31. Final busing information will be posted on August 28. With the exception of Special Education students, no letters will be sent to student homes.  

If your child requires other busing arrangements, please complete one of the following forms:

  •  If your student has any schedule other than traveling to and from home and school, (i.e., shared custody or day care) you must complete the Elementary & Middle School Transportation Registration Form (en Español). This needs to be filled out annually.  You do not need to complete this form if your child will be picked up and dropped off at your home address each day.

Contact the Transportation Department at 952-556-6160, or,  with any questions.
