As this school year is winding down, it is time to start thinking about bus transportation for 2012-2013.

Tucson Unified School District has implemented the Get on the Bus program which requires parents to register their child for school transportation by May 15 for the school year that starts Aug. 2.

“The district is taking a number of steps to improve transportation and communications,” said TUSD Director of Transportation Paul Larson. “We have assembled a transportation task force to coordinate collecting transportation-related data. In addition, a new phone system will improve our ability to handle the volume of phone calls at the start of school.”

The registration process applies only to students who are new to the district or changing schools. Once each student is registered, bus-stop information will be mailed to the family one week before school begins.

Those who register after the deadline may not receive school transportation on the first day of school, however, TUSD will make sure students receive school transportation as soon as possible.

In order to register and receive more information about the new program visit TUSD's website or call the district's customer care center at 225-4800.  The care center is open Monday to Friday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Additional enrollment questions can be answered at your child's school or from School Community Services at 225-6400.


TUSD seeks input through online survey

Tucson Unified School District is asking the public for input about the district, what is and is not working well, and what the the district's focus should be for the future.

The surveys will be reviewed for common issues and will provide staff with insight into the community's expectations and wants, the district said.

The survey, which is available in English and Spanish, is open through May 11 at the district's website.
