Student Transportation Changes for 2015-16
The Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction recently completed a Transportation Efficiency Review of Clover Park School District. This annual review determines the level of state funding assistance districts receive to provide student transportation. As a result of the review, some transportation services provided over the past few years will be eliminated.
Parents are encouraged to plan now for their child’s transportation needs for the upcoming school year.
Effective with the 2015-16 school year, transportation services will be limited to:
1. Transporting students to school and back home from established bus stops within each school’s attendance boundary.
2. Transportation services to the Lakewood Boys and Girls Club at 10402 Kline Street SW in Lakewood will be available from the following schools only:
- Dower Elementary;
- Four Heroes Elementary;
- Lakeview Hope Academy;
- Park Lodge Elementary;
- Tyee Park Elementary; and
- Lochburn Middle School.
3. Students in special programs assigned to schools outside their attendance area will continue to receive transportation services to and from school.
Schedules for all 2015-16 bus routes will be available by no later than Aug. 3. If you have questions regarding your child’s transportation to and from school, please call the district’s transportation department at 253-583-5494.
