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 a bus pass. To qualify for a reduced bus pass fee, you must submit a copy of your 2018/2019 approval letter from your lunch application. The bus pass fee for those who qualified for a free lunch is $30.00 each semester. A bus pass application is attached in English and Spanish along with the proposed bus stops.
All applications received after September 21, 2018 will be charged an additional $25.00 late fee per family application. Please submit your application between 8:00am-4:00pm.
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 ensure that your child will continue to have district-provided transportation starting with the first day of school on September 6, 2018. If the application and fees are not received by September 28, 2018, then your child will no longer be eligible for district-provided transportation.
