Changes in Bus Rider Eligibility 2019-2020
The Arlington Independent School District continues to evaluate procedures to ensure the safety of our students. One of the procedures being re-evaluated is the Transportation of our students to and from school.
Due to road construction and changes in the Arlington city streets the measuring procedures that are used to determine bus rider eligibility are being re-evaluated. The evaluation also includes remeasuring the distance from school to home and home to school. This has resulted in possible changes in rider eligibility.
All students will be re-evaluated for bus eligibility starting the 2019-2020 school year. Parents are encouraged to review this information immediately by visiting the following website:
Since the process is underway now, if a student is not eligible for busing as a result of our new measurements, they will be allowed to continue to ride for the remainder of the 2018-19 school year. However, other arrangements will need to be made for the 2019-2020 school year. Please take the time to verify your students’ eligibility for next year so you will have ample opportunity to arrange transportation if necessary.
Arlington ISD offers paid transportation on a first come, first serve, space availability basis. The Transportation Department begins taking applications annually on May 1st each year.
