    If your child is eligible for transportation, secure your seat as soon as possible.

    The school district may need to create new bus stops to accommodate elementary and middle school students who enroll after May 1. 

    Transportation is available for eligible students! In alignment with School Board policy, regular transportation is provided for eligible elementary students attending their zoned school or a designated feeder school if students live more than two miles from the school.

    The school district may need to create new bus stops to accommodate students who enroll after May 1. 

    • If children can be accommodated at an existing bus stop, they will have transportation on Day 1.
    • However, if a new stop needs to be created, transportation will be provided, but it may not be available until a few days after Summer Bridge begins.
    • Schools that are 100 percent District Application Programs will have limited transportation areas of 2-4 miles from the schools.

    Summer Bridge helps students succeed:

    • Elementary school students have continued to show impressive gains, with many students moving from “below proficiency” in reading, math or science to “at or near proficiency.” Most students who came to Summer Bridge already scoring “at or near proficiency” still showed promising learning gains.
    • Middle school students have continued to demonstrate promising growth in reading, math and science performance, with impressive gains in reading ability.
    • High school students have continued to benefit from Summer Bridge. The programs help students prepare for the state’s Algebra 1 EOC test, learn skills they need to succeed in high school and earn credits they need to graduate.
