The Huntington Beach City School District charges parents to transport students to and from the various schools in our district. The fees collected by this program cover a portion of the total cost of transportation. If adequate funding is not available from the State, the transportation expenses will be re-evaluated. According to Education Code Section 39809.5, a district is only able to charge up to the difference between transportation income and expenses.
The basic charge per student is $224.00 per semester. Methods of payment include cash, money orders, or personal checks. If your student qualifies for a reduced or free lunch, he/she may qualify for a reduced fee for his/her bus pass. Riders who qualify need to submit a copy of their 2016/2017 approval letter with the bus pass application for discounted rates. The Free lunch bus application has a $30.00 fee each semester. A bus pass application is attached in English and Spanish along with the proposed bus stops.
All applications received after September 23, 2016, will be charged an additional $25.00 late fee per family.
Students are expected to comply with all policies and procedures of the Huntington Beach City School District. The current rules are attached.
Completion and submission of the attached application, and all applicable fees, will insure that your child will continue to have district-provided transportation starting with the first day of school on September 8, 2016. If the application and fees are not received by the 30th of September, your child will no longer be eligible for transportation.
