school bus Bus Transportation Services for 2020-21

WPS is planning for transportation services for the upcoming 2020-21 school year. In accordance with State regulations and School Committee policy, free transportation will be provided for students in Kindergarten through Grade 6 residing more than 2 miles from your school. We will continue to offer fee-based transportation services to all other students (that is, students who live less than two miles from school or students in grades 7 through 12). The fee will be $521 per student, with a family cap of $1,142. In other words, when there are more than two children in a family participating in the fee-based transportation program, the fee for the third child is $100 and any additional child thereafter is free. The deadline for online registration with payment in full is April 17, 2020.
