Transportation Changes for 2022-23

(May 18, 2022) -- As a part of districtwide budget reductions, St. Louis Park Public Schools will be making several changes to student transportation for the 2022-23 school year. Transportation is a vital part of the day for many of our students and families. Reductions in transportation and other non-classroom areas will allow the district to reduce the impact of reductions on classrooms and programs. The transportation changes will result in budget savings of $325,000.

In the coming days, the district will begin to communicate with families who are impacted by these transportation changes. A summary of the changes is included below:

  • Expanded no bus zones for students residing in St. Louis Park, including the establishment of a no bus zone for Park Spanish Immersion Elementary School.
  • Condensed bus stops for secondary students.
  • Expanded no bus zones for students who open enroll from Minneapolis.
  • New elementary school boundaries for Minneapolis students.
  • High school students and families will be asked to opt-in for transportation.

Opt-In Form for High School Families

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.

2022-23 High School Transportation Opt-In Form

Important notes:

  • The district will review ridership and drop students who are not riding for 10 consecutive days or more.  Do not request transportation unless your student will ride the bus.  

  • The District will provide you the opportunity to add your student at the end of November and again at the end of March.

Thank you for taking the time to complete this form.
