Transportation Registration - Resident
2019-2020 Transportation Registration Form


All eligible students entering grades K-12 in a public or private school within District 197 who are planning to ride a bus must register for service. We can optimize school bus route planning if we know which students will actually ride.

Students will not be listed for bus service in the fall unless the Transportation Office receives a completed registration form on or before August 1. Forms received after August 1 will be put on hold. Students may not have bus service for the first two weeks of school or may be transported home by van (elementary) or asked to use the Academic/Activity Bus (middle and high school) until they are assigned to a route. Transportation requests received after the first two weeks of school will be processed within 2-3 business days. Please only register for service when you are sure your child will be riding a bus. Complete one form per child.

Postcards with bus information will be mailed in late August. If you do not receive a postcard, your student is not eligible or registered to use district busing. By registering your student for transportation services you are agreeing to comply with our transportation policies and procedures. The transportation policies can be found on the School District 197 website under School Board – Policy Manual (policies 707, 708, 709). If you have questions, please call Transportation at 651-403-8320. Please note, all students (grades K-12) are dropped off at their stop location regardless of whether or not a parent/guardian is present. Parents should be at the stop 5 minutes in advance of the scheduled time and wait at the stop until the bus arrives.
