Home-to-School-Transportation (HTST) registration priorities are based on Board Policy 3541 and are as follows :
Priority One: Students residing within Safety Zone Transportation areas, as defined in the Transportation Safety Plan, have first priority when registering for transportation services. Please refer to the map Safety Area Map for those areas. Parents can also use the Transportation Look-up to see if they reside within one of those areas.
Priority Two: If there are still available registration spots available after Priority One, Transitional Kindergarten through fifth-grade students who live more than one-mile walking distance from their school of residence and students in grades six through eight who live more than one and a half miles walking distance from their school of residence will have Second Priority when registering for transportation services.
Priority Three: If there are still available registration spots available after applying for Priority Two, then students that qualify as socioeconomically disadvantaged will have Third Priority when registering for transportation services.
Priority Four: If there are still available registration spots after applying for Priority Three, then students that are identified as English language learners will have Fourth Priority when registering for transportation services.
Important Note: If your student currently receives transportation services, this does not guarantee that they will receive them for the 2023-2024 school year. We will continue to expand registration if there are more spots available.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause as we roll out this new program. It is our goal to grow our department to accommodate as many students as we can, but this will take time as we work to improve the registration process.
Special Education Transportation
Sunnyvale School District’s new HTST plan does not impact students that are currently receiving contracted transportation. Students who have transportation services in their Individualized Education Plans will continue to receive those services.
If you have any questions pertaining to Special Education transportation, please reach out to Sri Venkat at (408) 522-8200 x 1029.
We will continue to adapt, evaluate, and expand our HTST program where we can. We appreciate your interest and we are looking forward to the 2023-2034 school year.
