Specialty Program Transportation

Transfer Programs

Students living within the boundaries of the specialty program school may ride their regular bus to school. Students who reside outside the program school boundaries may utilize the network of express bus stops.

Students participating in Specialty Programs outside of their zoned school receive express bus stops. Out-of-boundary Specialty Program students are students who live outside the host school's boundaries but within the specialty school's boundaries.

  1. It was not envisioned or intended that Specialty Program students would, in all cases, be able to walk safely to and from express bus stops. Parents are responsible for the student's safe transport to and from the express bus stop.
  2. Buses will stop only at established express bus stops.
  3. No special or neighborhood bus stops will be established.
  4. Students can use any established in-boundary express bus stop or a host school's regular bus stop.
  5. Unless the parent or school notifies the Transportation Department, an express bus stop can be eliminated if not used for five consecutive days.

Express bus stops will be established at express bus stops where six or more students have selected the stop. If your Specialty Program Coordinator has not contacted you by June regarding the express bus stops established for the following school year, you should contact the Specialty Program Coordinator.

Transportation requests, including the selection of a specific express stop, must be returned to the school with the specialty program application and again for every year the student is enrolled in the program.

Parents have the responsibility to provide transportation to and from express bus stops.

Transport Programs

Students attend all core and non-program classes and activities at their base school. A PWCS bus transports students between their base school and their program school for all CTE program classes daily, returning in time to ride their regular bus home.
