FROM THE OFFICE OF STUDENT TRANSPORTATION
Beginning 2017-2018 school year, the Lacey Township School District revised its Transportation Policy to offer subscription busing to and from school to students who attend Lacey Township School District in grades 7 through 12, and who are not eligible for free transportation because the students live within the designated walking zone. Click Here for a map of the designated walking zone.
APPLICATION TO RECEIVE BUSING
The application process is now open for the 2019-2020 school year. The application is web-based and can be found on our district website www.laceyschools.org
under Departments & Programs, then select Transportation. Applications will be accepted through August 19. An application is required for each child. Applications received after the closing date will be considered late with no guarantee that a seat will be available.
Students approved for subscription busing will be assigned to existing bus stops on existing routes based on availability. No changes or requests for additional routes or stops will be added. All students participating in the subscription busing program are subject to all rules and regulations regarding bus discipline and safety procedures as specified in district policies and regulations.
Payment is $180 per student with a maximum cost of $360 per family regardless of the number of students. Those qualifying for reduced lunch will pay $90 per student with a maximum cost of $180 per family regardless of the number of students. Those qualifying for free lunch will pay $45 per student with a maximum cost of $90 per family regardless of the number of students. Convenience fees will not be applied to online payments. All payments are due by August 19.
