In the past, a high volume of specialized transportation requests has complicated dismissal procedures, resulting in delayed bus departures and various safety concerns.  Reducing the number of specialized transportation changes allows us to better serve the families of Chartiers Valley. 

In the interest of student safety and security, specialized transportation requests do not carry over from the previous school year.  In addition to your assigned primary stop, you may request ONE additional stop by completing a Specialized Transportation Request Form.  The additional stop must be located within the district and on an existing route.  Additional routes will not be established.  

Specialized transportation requests received after June 30 are not guaranteed for the start of the school year.  Requests received after this date and throughout the school year will take two weeks to process.  

The District strives to maintain a safe, efficient and economical transportation system and therefore can not consider factors such as those listed below when approving specialized transportation requests.  

  • parent/guardian/caregiver is not able to see child(ren) walking to/from bus stop or waiting at bus stop
  • child(ren) or parent/guardian/caregiver is involved in a neighborhood feud with nearby residents
  • there has been a change in parent/guardian/caregiver’s work schedule 
  • parent/guarding/caregiver is not able to walk to/from the bus stop with the child

The granting of special transportation services is based on the disability or physical handicap of the child transported as required by the Pennsylvania Regulations at 22 Pa. Code 15.6 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.  The District shall not grant special transportation services to accommodate the disabilities or other circumstances concerning caregivers, siblings or other individuals.

Changes should be submitted by June 30.  Requests received after June 30 may not be guaranteed for the start of the school year.  

Details regarding your student's transportation information will be sent to you via email in early August.  Please be sure to update your email address in Infinite Campus to ensure receipt.
