TRANSPORTATION UPDATE

Good news!  We received confirmation on September 21st that the Transportation Spending Plan the School District submitted to the Ministry of Education for approval has been approved.  This means that we can begin the process of refunding bussing fees that families have paid.  We will begin that process as soon as possible. Thank you again for your patience.

The Transportation Department continues to work on the implementation of bus passes across the District. This new project has been both exciting and challenging for us:  we are excited about the increased student safety aspects of using bus passes and about the improved ridership data we can now collect, but we know that there have been some challenges with the passes.  We will be analyzing our processes later this fall, once things are settled, and will work toward addressing the challenges we've experienced.  A genuine and big thank you to families for supporting us with this project; we appreciate you helping by ensuring your child uses their bus pass on a daily basis.

Bus Registration Available

The Board of Education approved the submission of the district’s Transportation Funding Plan to the Ministry.  The plan has been submitted.  Once the Ministry approves the plan, refunds for bus fees already paid will be processed.  The Board is hopeful that the plan will be approved in a timely manner so that refunds can be given to families prior to the start of the new school year. 

 

If you are not registered for bussing, please note that any student planning to ride a district bus MUST be registered.  Please do not pay fees at this time.  For registration information, please visit the Bus Registration page, or call the transportation department at 250-365-8331 ext 804.
