Bus Registration

Students who are eligible for bus transportation services and wish to receive bus transportation must do so when they do their Online Registration. Students must be registered by the registration deadline of July 17, 2020 to ensure they are routed in a timely manner. If your student has not been registered for bus services by the deadline, they will be routed once their online registration has been submitted but it could take up to five (5) to ten (10) business days to complete.

If you have moved, it is your responsibility to contact your campus so the information can be updated in the system.

Student Discipline

McKinney ISD’s Student Code of Conduct prohibits certain behaviors, defines standards of acceptable behavior on and off campus as well as on District vehicles and consequences for violation of these standards. The rules of student conduct extends to the school bus. There are additional rules that require compliance on board school buses to comply with safety protocols. School bus transportation is a privilege. Failure to comply with Student Code of Conduct and safety protocols may result in suspension of transportation services.

Bus Routes

Bus Eligibility

Transportation is available for children who live two air-miles or more from their assigned school. The distance a student lives from their assigned school is determined by measuring the distance from the school to the curb in front of their home.

Potential Hazard Routes

McKinney ISD analyzes potential hazardous routes each year and they are determined by criteria such as major thoroughfares and sidewalk or pedestrian access to the school, and other safety factors.
