The Chico Unified School District Board has approved the establishment of a fee-based transportation program in order to continue transportation services to eligible students (elementary students residing more than two miles from the school and secondary students residing more than three miles from school).  The purpose of this program is to provide safe, convenient, effective and cost-effective transportation services to students.  Parents desiring home-school transportation services must apply for the service ANNUALLY and receive District approval before their child(ren) will be allowed to ride the school bus. Applications must be approved and fees paid at the Transportation Office located at 2455 Carmichael Drive.

Authority of Bus Driver

Students transported in a school bus or in a school student activity bus shall be under the authority of, and responsible to, the driver of the bus, and the driver shall be held responsible for the orderly conduct of the students while they are on the bus or being escorted across a street, highway or road. Continuing disorderly conduct or persistent refusal to submit to the authority of the driver shall be sufficient reason for a student to be denied transportation. A bus driver shall not require any student to leave the bus en route between home and school or other destinations.
