The Pierce County School Transportation Department makes available school bus service for more than 3,500 students enrolled in Pierce County Schools who reside in the bus attendance zone of the school they are attending.  School transportation is provided in conformance with pupil transportation policies and procedures established by the State Board of Education and the Pierce County Board of Education.

School transportation is a privilege and to maintain this privilege, a student must abide by established bus conduct rules.  A pupil's transportation privilege may be suspended or revoked if conduct creates a disruption or safety hazard on the school bus.  The principal or his/her designee handles all disciplinary action taken for misconduct on the school bus.

Only authorized personnel are allowed aboard a school bus.  Authorized personnel include the driver, transportation department employees, pupils, approved school system personnel, chaperones, and law enforcement officers.

The Pierce County Board of Education does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, national
origin, sex, age, religion or disabling condition in educational programs, activities or employment.
