Transportation

IDEA Public Schools is committed to ensuring the safe transportation of your child to and from school.

Transportation Update (September 10, 2020)

IDEA Public Schools’ Transportation team is here to safely serve and transport our students. To continue doing so, we have updated our transportation protocols by adding increased health and safety guidelines for the 2020-21 school year, which includes taking temperature screenings of all students before entering a bus, requiring masks are worn while on the bus, and limiting seating to accommodate for social distancing.

With safety in mind and social distancing guidelines, our buses capacity has been reduced to approximately half and is limited to 12-17 students each. Therefore, we are asking that only essential riders such as those with special needs, limited technology access, and those without another mode of transportation, reserve a space for bus transportation at this time. We are asking all families who have transportation to drop off their students at the school so that we can safely transport those that do not have other modes of transportation.

Picking Up Students

Dropping Off Students

Disinfecting Our Buses

At IDEA Public Schools, the journey to and from school is an extension of classroom learning. To help us provide a safe and pleasant bus ride experience for your children, please follow the two steps below to ensure the accuracy of your child’s transportation information:

Log into PowerSchool and click on the transportation tab. From there, you can register for transportation (student route should be available within 2 business days of submission) or verify your child’s bus stop information. Once registered you can move to step 2.

Step 2: "Here Comes The Bus" Application

When your children scans their bus pass, this application allows you to see, in real time, where your child’s bus is and when and where your child got on or off. This easy-to-use technology is free, simply download the “Here Comes the Bus” application on your smartphone, create a secure account, add your children, and you’re all set!

IDEA’s school code for Texas is: 83127
