Dear Lovejoy Families,
As we look forward to the 2021-2022 school year, LISD is planning to offer a fee-for-service transportation program for all students residing in Lovejoy ISD (regardless of distance) that wish to utilize home-to-school bus services as well as campus-to-campus shuttle services. This fee will not apply to students who receive bus services as part of their Special Education Individual Education Plan.
As we work to address budget areas for next year, Lovejoy ISD must offset the expense of transportation services while providing a manageable fee for our families. Currently, the cost to operate our regular education transportation program is approximately $650,000 per year, and we average between 450 and 550 riders per day.
In order to set the threshold for service fees, we need to know how many of our families plan to utilize transportation services next year and what services they require. Please take a few minutes to complete this quick survey by Friday, May 21st, as this will help the Administration form a fee proposal for transportation services for the May 24th Board Meeting.
