Car Rider Placards

If your child is going to be a car rider consistently this year, please call the office prior to the first day of school. Please tell the staff your child's name and the number of placards you will need. We will send them home with your child on the first day of school. You will still pick up your child on the first day of school.







All transportation information for next year will roll over using the student's HOME address. This applies to every grade level. If parents use a daycare/sitter, a new form for the 2017-18 school year MUST be submitted using the online form found HERE.

The deadline for any changes you would like to make to your 2017-18 transportation is Friday, July 21, 2017. Any requests made after this date will not be added to the bus routes until Monday, August 28, 2017. This includes changes of address, adding your student to a bus route, or changing the pickup and/or drop off location for your student. Any changes must be submitted using the online form found HERE.

Parents will be responsible for transportation until Monday, August 28, 2017, if they submit changes after the July 21st deadline.

In addition, no change of address requests will be processed until the change of address is submitted to Mrs. Jill Besida (330-722-8257 x1001) at the Buckeye Board of Education offices and verified with a current proof of residency or residency affidavit. Once the address change is verified, it will be processed by Transportation.

If you are unable to submit the online Transportation Request form, you may print and submit a written Transportation Request form found HERE.
