Bus Transportation Fees:

To receive free bus transportation service from home to the school building, the primary home address must be located outside a one-mile boundary for elementary students or a two-mile boundary for secondary students. Distance to and from school is determined by Durham School Services’ GPS routing system and can be viewed in PowerSchool. Students who qualify for the free or reduced lunch program may be eligible for free or reduced transportation pricing.

Busing and applicable fees are determined by your primary home address:

  • Elementary: more than 1 mile from the school = free
  • Secondary: more than 2 miles from the school = free

Fees (students located inside one-mile or two-mile boundaries):

  • $280 per year, round trip, per child
  • $140 per year, one-way, per child
