 RE:      Fee for Service Transportation

 

May 2017 

Dear Parent/Guardian: 

Attleboro Schools will offer bus service on a FEE FOR SERVICE basis for the 2017-2018 school year.  School policy allows for the following: 

All Kindergarten and 1st grade students are transported free of charge.  

Students in Grades 2 – 4 whose legal residence is between .6 to 2.0 miles from their assigned school are eligible for Fee for Service.  All students in Grades 2-4 whose legal residence is .5 miles or less from your school are not eligible for transportation.

Students in Grades 5 – 12 whose legal residence is between 1.1 to 2.0 miles from their assigned school are eligible for Fee for Service.  All students in Grades 5-12 whose legal residence is 1.0 mile or less from your school are not eligible for transportation. 

The School Committee has adopted a change to the Fee for Service program effective July 1, 2016.  All students grades 7-12 that live more than 1.0 mile from school are now considered Fee for Service. Free bussing for students in these grades has been eliminated. Students living 1.0 miles or less are considered walkers and are not eligible for transportation. 

During the past year, your child may have been transported free of charge, however this status could be impacted by things such as policy, school attending and grade changes so your student may no longer be eligible for free bussing.  

IT IS THEREFORE IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT EVEN IF YOU WERE REGISTERED FOR BUS SERVICE DURING THE 2016-2017 SCHOOL YEAR YOU STILL NEED TO REAPPLY FOR THE 2017-20178 SCHOOL YEAR. 

RATE SCHEDULE FOR THE 2017 - 2018 SCHOOL YEAR:              

 1st Student                          $165.00                                                          

2nd Student                          $145.00                                                          

3rd Student                           $120.00

4th Student                              $80.00                        

Maximum per family            $500.00          

 

All Payments are due in FULL by July 30, 2017. Payment made after the deadline are subject to a $25.00 late fee. There will also be a hold on transportation, as needed, for students who sign up for services after the deadline. Students that apply after the deadline will be placed on a first come first serve basis and a seat will not be guaranteed.

 

Enclosed please find a fee for service application.  You may fill this out and mail it with a check or money order made payable to the Attleboro School Department. Waivers will be granted to households whose income falls within the guidelines established by the federal government.  See INCOME ELIGIBILITY GUIDELINES included in this packet. If your child qualifies for this waiver please follow the directions on that page.
