Dear Open Enrollment Parent/Guardian:
Last school year, applications were accepted from open enrollment families wishing to obtain bus service. Permission was granted based on capacity at that time and the accommodation was made for that school year only, noting to families that it may not be available in future school years.
As we enter the new school year, we are in the process of assessing our in-district ridership to determine the capacity for Open Enrollment riders again. As an open enrollment family, transportation of your student is your responsibility and will continue to be your responsibility until you have applied for and have been accepted for ridership during the 2012-2013 school year.
If you would like to request that your student ride an existing bus during the 2012-2013 school year, an application will be available on the district website beginning September 4, 2012. The website address is www.cfsd16.org. Click on Parent Info, then Transportation. All requests received by September 10th will be given equal consideration. If the capacity of our buses is insufficient to accommodate all the students, then a random selection process will be used to accept riders. Applications submitted after September 10th will be considered on a first come, first serve basis.
The application requires you to determine the bus number and bus stop you would like to access. Bus schedules will be available at the beginning of August on the district website: www.cfsd16.org. Click on Parent Info, then Transportation.
Please note that if the requested information on the application is not complete, the request will not be considered.
