CSS is attempting to provide limited transportation to those families most in need of support with getting students to and/or from school. To this end, we are in the process of hiring a qualified school bus driver.
Families who would like to be considered for bus transportation must complete a request form prior to the beginning of school, August 26, 2019. Once we have received requests, we will coordinate a route with two to three hub stops that will allow us to accommodate the most families. WE anticipate starting bus transportation the second week of school, Tuesday, September 3, 2019.
Please understand that providing bus transportation is a huge undertaking in terms of logistics and cost. We anticipate the total cost of operating one bus will cost a total of $25,000-$35,000 a year. And as you may know, charter schools do not receive funding for transportation. Obviously, given our continuing funding challenges, we must limit our efforts regarding transportation. As such, we encourage all families to consider car-pooling. This process can achieve the same goals while saving money for families and for the school.
We look forward to assisting as many families as possible with bus transportation. As we work towards this goal, we ask for patience and understanding as we won’t be able to accommodate all requests this school year. Thanks for your support!
