Reimbursement Contract Form

Bloomington Public Schools offers a contractual arrangement with parents/guardians who provide transportation for their child(ren) attending an eligible non-public school and desire reimbursement for that transportation. Forms for the 2018-2019 school year must be returned to us via email, fax, or US mail by Friday, November 16, 2018.

Pay-to-ride contract 2018-2019

Bloomington Public Schools may be able to provide transportation to students that are not eligible for free transportation to and from school. Pay-to-Ride is a fee-based service that allows children to use an established bus stop for a ride to school.

This service is useful for resident Bloomington students who live in the walk area for their school, are outside of their school busing area, or are open enrolled at a Bloomington public school.

Please note that we do not add new bus stops, nor do we extend transportation outside of the school attendance border. Students will be able to use the established bus stop once payment is submitted to the Transportation Center. This service is only available if there is room on the bus.

Transportation for Students with Medical Life Threatening Conditions
Please complete this form if your student has a life threatening condition such as asthma, diabetes, peanut allergy, latex allergy, etc. that their Bus Driver(s) needs to be aware of in case of emergency. It needs to be updated yearly.

Transportation of Students with a Medical Condition or Temporary Handicap
Please complete this form if your student has a temporary handicap or medical condition that request special transportation for a limited amount of time. This could include broken legs, surgery, seasonal asthma, etc. This form requires a doctor's signature.

Bus stop change request form
All changes affect each student at the current stop, so change requests can be denied based on a lack of neighborhood agreement as there can be no more than one stop assigned per block. The following district policies will be taken into consideration -- please do not submit a request if it does not meet all of these criteria:

  • Students are expected to walk up to one-half (1/2) mile to a bus stop
  • Bus stops must be located at corners or areas that provide the best view of traffic
  • Students residing in cul-de-sacs or on dead end streets are expectedto walk to the nearest intersection to access a bus stop.
If you have questions or need more information please contact us at transportation@isd271.org or 952-681-6300.
