Transportation to a CCSD magnet/choice school is provided from centralized bus stops. This is not the same pick up process as for students attending their "home" attendance zone school.
● CCSD does not transport students younger than 4 years old.
● Centralized locations are used for magnet/choice school bus stops and could be as far as five miles from your home in commercial or unsupervised areas within the designated constituent district. (See chart below.)
● These are parent assisted bus stops and are not intended to be stops to which most students can walk or be left unattended.
● For most efficient routing, riders may be pooled with a wide range of age groups on the same bus.
This should be considered when submitting an application for a magnet school. Detailed information regarding specific routes will be available near the beginning of school when routes are developed. Also please note, charter schools handle their own transportation and you
should contact them directly if you are applying for a charter school and have questions related to transportation.
