Transportation Department Procedures For Parents
1. Student Ridership Eligibility
All regular students are eligible to ride the bus only if they live 2 or more miles from their campus.
Students with special needs are an exception to this rule as long as they have approval from an ARD committee.
2. School Bus Registration
In order for your child to ride the bus, you must fill out the Bus Registration Form located under Transportation at celinaisd.com. Both new and continuing students must fill out this form.
If you have any issues or questions about the bus registration process, call the Transportation Department or send an email to [email protected]
Please be sure to review the bus rules of conduct before your child rides the bus.
3. Bus Conduct Procedures
If your child does not follow the bus rules, disciplinary action may be necessary. Depending on the severity of the violation, this may include but is not limited to: verbal warning, written warning, assigned seating, or suspension from the bus.
After exhausting all other reasonable means of discipline, the bus driver will complete a Bus Conduct Report.
When a Bus Conduct Report is completed, an investigation will be conducted involving the Transportation Director and campus principal to determine the disciplinary action and the parent will be notified.
Principals will receive a copy of the Bus Conduct Report and the Transportation Department will keep one on file as well.
Please direct all Bus Conduct Report questions and concerns to Transportation Director Kevin Vollweiler, at 469-742-9114.
4. Child Ride-Along Policy
If your child is going to have another student ride the bus to or from school with them, it is necessary to have a note from the parent. This must also be approved through the school office or the Transportation Department. You may contact the Transportation Department at 469-742-9114.
Celina ISD Transportation Department will not transport ineligible students without proper permission.
