According to Pennsylvania Law, Non-Public and Charter school children are entitled to transportation to Non-Public and Charter schools as follows:
- A District that provides transportation for resident public school students must also make identical provisions for transporting resident Non-Public and Charter school students according to the Non-Public or Charter school calendar.
- Transportation for Non-Public and Charter school students must be provided to and from the Non-Public or Charter school in which the student is enrolled, even if the Non-Public or Charter school is located outside the District, so long as the distance is not more than 10 miles beyond the District boundaries.
- A District may transport children who live along hazardous routes even though the children live within walking distance of the Non-Public or Charter school.
Please complete the request form below if you think you are eligible for transportation and desire it for the next school year.
A SEPARATE FORM FOR EACH CHILD MUST BE COMPLETED ANNUALLY FOR CONTINUED TRANSPORTATION SERVICES FOR ALL NON-PUBLIC AND CHARTER SCHOOL STUDENTS.
Please Note: A child must be withdrawn from Public school and officially enrolled in a Non-Public or Charter School for transportation to begin.
