McKinney ISD


Special Needs Transportation

Special transportation originates at the campus level. Once your campus determines you qualify for special transportation, a Special Needs Transportation request is submitted by the campus staff to the district’s Special Populations department.

  1. As soon as the student is routed, MISD will contact the parent using the information in the student file. If no one answers the call, a voice mail is left for the parent or guardian.
  2. The parent will be notified of the start date and the bus information.
  3. Special Populations will send an email to the school with the bus information and times.

Initial placements and subsequent changes can take five (5) to ten (10) business days to complete.

All transportation changes must be sent to your child’s campus. The staff will coordinate any changes to your child’s special needs transportation directly with the Special Populations department. Transportation will be provided to/from home to school. Each student can only have one pick up location and one drop off location.

If your child will be absent, it is imperative that you call Dispatch and cancel the bus. Their number is 972-542-8316. To cancel permanently please contact your child’s teacher and they will email us the changes.
