Important News about Transportation

Transportation Blog

Parents, 

 

WCPSS will not provide buses to daycares or after school clubs such as the Boys and Girls Club for afternoon routes. Although this has been done in the past, WCPSS has recently changed their practices in order to provide better service to students who are currently eligible for transportation.  Eligible students are provided transportation services to and from their residence, not before or after school care locations.  Again, no buses will leave Wake Forest Middle School in the afternoons and go to the Boys and Girls Club or any other non-residence location.  Parents can apply for alternate bus stops but these will NOT be considered until after the first 30 days of school.  

 

All requests for a stop other than the primary residence has to go through the school district's site at http://www.wcpss.net/parents/transportation/. School personnel is to direct all phone calls regarding transportation to the (919) 805-3030 phone number.  

This new system is in place to better provide for the students who had existing transportation (home to home).  Traditional schedule routes and stop times are posted to the website beginning Monday August 18th.  Please note there are many stop changes this year.  Parents must check their stops and not assume they will be the same as last year.  The changes were made to improve efficiency and delivery times.

WFMS PARENT PUBLICATION

Transportation information for students with alternative stops

Families can apply online for alternate bus stops

 

Families can now apply using a new online form, if they need an alternate school bus stop for before- or after-school care.

 

The online form is at http://www.wcpss.net/parents/transportation/change-bus-stop/

 

Students eligible for bus service have been assigned a stop this school year based on their home address of record. Once these routes are established, Transportation will evaluate alternate stop requests for before or after school care to determine if the requested stop fits on an existing bus route and if space is available on the bus to accommodate the student. WCPSS does not add bus stops during the first 30 days of school.

 

Students who were approved as voluntary transfers for 2013-14 and received transportation for the year may apply on this new online form to seek bus service for 2014-15. This request for service for an ineligible student will be reviewed to determine if it falls on the existing route of a bus with available space and does not significantly affect other students’ ride time. These types of requests will not be processed during the first 30 days of school as bus service for eligible students is still being established.

 

Improving bus service

This school year for the first time, WCPSS Transportation has a team of routing specialists who will work to provide eligible riders safe and timely bus service.

 

They will base routes on families who used bus service last year or families who signed up to ride the bus for 2014-15. In the past, transportation plans assumed all students would ride the bus. Of the 153,000 students last year, 76,000 were bus riders.

 

Beginning the planning process with accurate ridership will help Transportation planners provide improved bus routing. This should provide families better bus service from the start of the school year. Routes for known riders will be set for the first day of school. Bus drivers will practice set routes to be ready for the first day of school. With improved routing, buses will travel less distance saving money on fuel and maintenance.

 

Special needs students
Families of children who are homeless, have Individual Education Plans (IEPs), or have plans under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (504) may need to request special transportation, as they move into the community or change address. These families will need to enroll their child in the new school or notify their current school of the address change and inform school staff of their child’s IEP, 504 plan or homeless status. Students will be assigned to transportation.

 

After the first 30 days of school, bus drivers will monitor ridership. Transportation will drop the bus stop for students who do not use the bus for 10 consecutive school days. Families only need to apply for students to receive service again.

 

The goal of this practice is to improve the service for those that consistently ride the bus.

Please note, individual teachers may require additional supplies. This is a list to get you started as you hit those Back to School sales.

 

 6th Grade

  • Loose Leaf Paper

Some examples of organization would be a large, sturdy 3-ring binder, several smaller individual binders for each class, or an accordion style folder system.


Take advantage of the back to school sales for the following items to be kept at home for students to complete homework, study for tests, and work on projects throughout the year.  Stock up on pencils, pens, paper, posterboard, tape, glue sticks, highlighters, construction paper, index cards, erasers, colored pencils, markers, crayons, notebooks, and folders.  Don’t forget a pencil sharpener, stapler, and hole punch.

Students who have previously purchased other versions of this type of calculator can still use them.
