2019/2020 SUBSCRIPTION BUSING DEADLINE May 31, 2019
The Board of Education will offer parent-paid subscription transportation for the 2019/2020 school year. All information about Busing can be found on our Transportation page at https://www.millburn.org/
Reminder: Students who do not qualify for mandated transportation, i.e., grades K-8 who live less than 2 miles from school or grades 9-12 who live less than 2.5 miles from school, can apply for subscription busing. You can determine whether you qualify by emailing the transportation department at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Past participation does not guarantee a seat and you must follow the attached directions to subscribe for the 2019/2020 school year. You will be scheduled for busing on a first come/first serve basis; once seats are not available you will be notified and be put onto the waitlist. Please be aware that for safety reasons only items that fit easily onto a student's lap will be permitted onto the bus.
Fees: If you are interested in subscription busing beginning in September, the fee for the 2019/2020 school year will be $775.00 per student and is non- refundable. There is a family cap of $1550.00.
Online Registration: All applications must be submitted online through CommunityPass. If you are interested in having transportation provided on a fee basis, please follow the directions found on our webpage to submit your application online by the deadline of Friday, May 31, 2019, by paying in total ($775) through your community pass account via credit card or by dropping a check off to the Millburn Education Center at the address listed above.
Payment: You may pay by credit card online, or you may pay by check after you have submitted the application online. If you are paying by check it should be made payable to “Millburn Township Board of Education” and mailed within three business days of completing the online registration (a confirmation email will be sent when the check is received). Credit card payments (with a $5 convenience fee) will be accepted until May 31st. Application requests received after May 31, 2019 will be put on a wait list and will not be scheduled for busing before September 20, 2019, if seats are still available on the appropriate bus.
Waivers: If you are applying for a fee waiver, you must fill out the waiver form and get all required documentation to the Business Office before May 31, 2019. The waiver of the $775/student charge is available for families who meet the qualifying income level according to the guidelines set by the State of New Jersey for free and reduced lunch.
Bus Route information and bus passes will be mailed to families in August.
