It is the goal of the Bridgeton School District to provide safe and efficient transportation for all eligible students. The district provides transportation to and from school in accordance with district Board policy. It is the policy of the Board to define a remote distance as beyond one-half mile for all students grade 2-12. For the safety of our students in pre-k (4) through grade 1, we provide transportation to all of these students in our schools.

The Transportation Department receives many requests for bus/stop changes. The district is unable to accommodate requests for changes in transportation due to babysitters or daycare centers. All requests must be submitted in writing and will be handled case by case as they are received. Any change in transportation arrangements due to change of address must be submitted to your school’s registration office; no exceptions can be made.

Bus Changes
Please allow a minimum of three to five business days to process approved changes. All revised bus passes are sent to the main office of the student’s school. Please note that bus drivers are not permitted to make changes to bus routes or stops without prior approval of the Transportation Coordinator.

 Quality Single Accountability Continuum (QSAC)

The Quality Single Accountability Continuum  (QSAC) is the Department of Education’s monitoring and evaluation system for  public school districts. The system shifts the monitoring and evaluation focus  from compliance to assistance, capacity-building and improvement. It is a single comprehensive accountability system that consolidates and incorporates the monitoring requirements of applicable state laws and programs and  complements federally required improvements. The system focuses on monitoring and evaluating school districts in five key components that, based on research,  have been identified to be key factors in effective school districts.
