The District only provides alternate transportation in an emergency.
Students are expected to ride their assigned bus and load/unload only at
their assigned stop. In the event of an extreme emergency, a parent
may request their student ride a different bus by completing the
"Request for Alternate Transportation" form online located on the
DSISD Transportation website. The form must be submitted with all
requested information at least one day in advance and must be approved
by the transportation department. This service is intended only for
emergencies and will only be permitted in extreme emergencies. If the
request is approved, the campus will receive the approval to print for
the student as the driver is required to have this documentation. When a
student needs to go home with a friend for any reason, parent should
work out transportation issues together ahead of time.
Parents requesting their student be permitted to unload at a stop other than their assigned stop on their assigned route must also complete this same form one day in advance to ensure the driver has documentation of the approval.
Choose the school the student attends to access the appropriate Request for Alternate Transportation Form.
