All students who wish to use bus transportation are REQUIRED to be registered each year, regardless of whether fees apply. (This includes families who have reached the family cap.)
Students that attend private schools in Shrewsbury or Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School can register using the Online Process.
Students that attend Shrewsbury Public Schools can register using their Powerschool Parent Portal account. Please read information BELOW.
The Parent Portal will open for bus registration for the 2018-2019 school year on April 3rd, 2018 and close on June 30th, 2018. As a kind reminder, please register during this time frame to avoid a $50 late fee and ensure you have a bus assignment for the begining of school.
The Bus Privilege registration fee for the 2018-2019 school year is $300.00.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact the transportation director.
STEP 1: Online Registration - The registration process begins with the online portion through the PowerSchool Parent Portal. If you cannot access your Parent Portal account, please email the registrar Diane Abbott. A message will be displayed during the registration process stating whether or not a fee is required. Print the online registration confirmation form for your records. If no fee is due, your registration is complete.
STEP 2: Payment, if required* - if payment is required, families will see a link to use our NEW online payment option or choose to send in payment in the form of check or money order. The printed registration confirmation form must be submitted by June 30th or postmarked by that date to avoid a late fee.
*Payment Requirements - All students in grades K-6 who reside 2.0 miles or less from their school and students in grades 7-12 are REQUIRED to pay the fee. The bus fee is $300.00 per child with a $900.00 family cap.
STEP 3: Bus Stop Information - Parents/Guardians will obtain bus number and stop location information in late August by accessing the PowerSchool Parent Portal. No information will be sent to homes. The Transportation Department will communicate by email when the information is available in the Parent Portal.
Please refer to the Transportation Policies and Procedures document and the FAQ document under the left navigation/section menu. Many updates and changes have been instituted. General questions can be sent via email.
