Salem-Keizer Public Schools requires bus-rider registration for all district students requesting transportation on a regular bus route. Students receiving transportation as a related service to an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) will have their request initiated through their teacher or case manager.
The benefits of Rider Registration include:
- Enhanced student safety: students board the correct bus, limits bus overcrowding, helps improve student conduct, restricts unauthorized riders
- More accurate communication with parents
- Cost savings from routing efficiencies
Any transportation-eligible student who wants to ride the school bus to and/or from school needs to be registered. Students must register for bus service every school year.
Transportation-eligible means that the student lives at a residence within their neighborhood school attendance boundary, and the residence is outside the State of Oregon defined walk zone for that school. The walk zones are 1.0 mile for elementary students and 1.5 miles for secondary students.
Registration forms are accepted and processed all year. Please complete a form as soon as possible for.
