As a part of districtwide budget reductions, St. Louis Park Public Schools is making several changes to transportation for the 2022-23 school year. Transportation is a vital part of the day for many of our students and families, but reductions in transportation and other non-classroom areas allow the district to reduce the impact of reductions on classrooms and programs. The changes in transportation will result in budget savings of $325,000.
As a result, beginning with the 2022-2023 school year all 9th through 12th grade students will need to opt-in (register) for transportation. Several metro area school districts are using this practice to ensure that transportation service is running as efficiently as possible.
The district will require that you complete the 2022-23 Transportation Opt-In Form if your address is eligible for transportation and you wish to have school bus transportation for your student in 2022-23. If this form is not completed by August 1, 2022, no bus transportation will be routed for your High School student for the fall of 2022-23.
