Transportation Appeals Process

Appeals to the Transportation Review Board are a process providing parents and/or students with an opportunity to present all concerns regarding a denied request for transportation. Because the granting of transportation rests with several District offices, the process is an opportunity to assure that transportation decisions are made on the basis of all relevant information, and in accordance with applicable District regulations.
