Pasadena Independent School District provides bus transportation to and from school as a courtesy service for eligible students residing in the district. The State of Texas prescribes the conditions governing school bus operations and partially funds the service by allotting the district a given amount for eligible students transported.
Eligible students are defined by State statute as those residing in the District at least two miles from the school they should attend, as measured by the nearest practical route on a public road. Pasadena ISD also chooses to transport ineligible students at District expense if hazardous conditions exist.
In order to meet the conditions outlined by the State and provide safe, prompt movement of students, the Transportation Department has adopted standard regulations and procedures and has provided restrictive measures for violations of the rules. They are herein outlined for your information and for the guidance of your child.
Pasadena ISD is pleased to provide transportation for its eligible students and solicits your assistance in helping create a safe, healthy operation. I ask that you read and discuss the contents of this handbook with your children to promote a clear understanding of the responsibilities and expectations of those pupils who ride buses.
Please contact the Transportation Department at 713-740-0817 if you have any questions concerning bus routes, etc. If you should need information concerning student misconduct on buses, call the student's school.
With your assistance, this school year will be a safe and successful one for all of our students. Thank you for your support and cooperation.
