Adding Your Student to a Bus

 

        Step 1.  Parents / Guardians : Update the "Transportation Tab" on your Student's Final Forms to "Needs Busing"

  • Make sure that ALL information is completed in its entirety as this could delay the process.
  • Please note that if you have multiple students that each form needs to be updated for each individual student.

 

         Step 2.  Parents / Guardians : Email our secretary at wstr_klawson@woostercityschools.org , letting her know that you have updated this information.

  • If an email is not received it does take up to 3 school days for Final Forms to transfer information to our routing system. An email to our secretary will speed the process to 1-2 school days.

 

        Step 3The Transportation Supervisor will route the student(s) based on policies and procedures.

 

        Step 4. Transportation Secretary will email  parent/guardian on file to email on the student's finalforms, as well as, to the building secretary with busing information.

  • Please make sure that the parent/guardian email is up to date as this is the main form of communication with our district and parents.

 

        Step 5. Transportation Secretary communicates changes and updates to Bus/Route Drivers.

 

 

     

 

Temporary Bus Pass
 
Whether it is for the Morning or Afternoon routes, our office must be notified if your child needs a temporary pass to ride a bus or a different bus than they are not routed for.
This is to ensure the safety of our students, your child and our staff.
If our office is not notified and permission not granted to our drivers, by our supervisor, your student will not be permitted to board the bus for transportation.

 
 
 
 
 
The Transportation Department and its employees are dedicated to the safety and well being of all children attending the Wooster City School District system. Each student is valuable to all of us and as such will be treated with respect and dignity. We have committed ourselves as the Transportation Department to ensure that each child be given a safe trip to school in the morning and a safe return home at the end of the day.
