At the Regular Board Meeting on August 11, 2022, the Board of Trustees provided direction for the initial general education bus routes to be offered for the 2022-2023 school year. This decision was made to address the staffing shortages of licensed bus drivers.  [Click here for a full copy of the letter.]

The following general education routes for your school will be offered at the start of the school year effective, Wednesday, August 17, 2022:

o Rancho Minerva Middle School with pick up/drop off at Luz Duran Park: 8:10 a.m. and 8:40 a.m., returning 4:15 p.m. and 4:50 p.m.

At this time, if you are registered to attend one of these schools for the 2022-2023 school year, please use  the link below to request a bus pass for one of the available transportation options or to indicate if you  would prefer to attend a school closer to your home if the school bus offering should have higher demand  than seats available and you are placed on a wait list. Sign up here:

All families will be forwarded information from the North County Transit District (NCTD) on additional free  public transportation options.
