The District’s transportation policies are aimed at providing a safe, efficient, and economical mode of getting students to and from school. Transportation shall be scheduled in a way that best serves the educational interests of the students while considering the safety of our students. In an effort to be fiscally responsible and to maintain operational feasibility, efficiencies including single designated pick-up/drop-off locations and group bus stops will remain in effect.
Our goal is to make transportation for our students as timely, safe and pleasant as possible!
- If your child is eligible for, but will not be utilizing transportation services, please inform us by returning the slip included with their 2022/23 school year bus information or by sending an email to email@example.com.
- If you initially decline transportation services and change your mind at a later date, you may request that service resume by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org at least three business days prior to the date you wish for transportation to begin.
ATTENTION: Just a reminder -- Westlake Board of Education policy states that students in grades K-8 are only provided transportation if they reside MORE THAN 1 MILE from their school of attendance.

- I cannot see my child’s bus stop from the house. Are there state laws that set the standards for bus stop locations?
- Are sidewalks required for my child to get to his/her bus stop?
- I transport my child to a nonpublic/community school each day and just learned a program exists for reimbursement. How can I be reimbursed for transporting my child?
- I make my child wait inside of my house until the bus is at the stop. I have heard this is not allowed – is this true?
- My child has an I.E.P. but transportation is not being provided. Why is this?
