Welcome to the Palisades Charter High School (“PCHS”) Transportation Program. We look forward to working together to ensure that the school bus program is safe and successful. The information provided here will answer some of the questions you may have concerning our school bus program and policies.
Enrollment and Continued use of the PCHS Transportation Program is a privilege governed by an annual agreement, keeping current with payments, and acceptable student behavior while riding the bus. This privilege can be revoked if in PCHS’s sole discretion it is warranted.
Our goal is to provide safe, dependable, and convenient transportation for PCHS students who are enrolled in the program. We think you will be satisfied with the quality of service you receive throughout the school year.
The cost of transportation for the 2016-2017 school year has been $125/month for 10 school months (Aug 2016 to the End of School 2017) or $1,250 for the year. A deposit of $250 (first and last month's payments) was due upon registration.
If you did not pay up-front, monthly payments are due by 3:00pm on the 5th of each month (or earlier if the 5th is on a weekend or holiday). If a student has not paid for a given month, or they WILL NOT be permitted to ride the bus as of the 6th of the month until they have paid in full for that month AND paid in full for any previous months they have not paid. The PCHS Transportation Program IS NOT a Month-to-Month program, it is a full 10-Months commitment program and once you enroll, unless there are extenuating circumstances, the student is required to pay for all 10 months of the program.
If for any reason your son/daughter is not taking the school bus for part of the month, or the entire month, even if because PCHS is on a non-summer break, you are still obligated to pay for the entire month. There is no partial payment for a month accepted. For more information regarding our payment policies, please see our Transportation FAQs below.
2017-18 school year prices and routes may change from this year. Initial/Preliminary routes will be available by registration time in May/June, but also may change post registration through end of Aug.
2017-18 Transportation Program Registration is planned to close as of 7/15/2017. There will be no additional registrations automatically accepted after this date. Only exceptions will be if 1) We have excess capacity on a given bus/route 2) If the waiting list for a given bus/route grows to >=42 AND we can secure a bus AND a driver for an extra bus. Registration will be on a First-Come/First-Served basis related to payment being received, not registration received. If you register before 7/15/2017, but do not pay as needed by 3:00pm on 7/15/2017, you’re registration becomes null and void.
