Do you have problems remembering when 2nd semester bus passes are due? If your budget allows, you can purchase bus passes for the entire school year! We simply keep track of those students, reissue new passes and send them to their school all during the Christmas break.
The Brandon Valley Transportation Department is open all summer. It’s that time of year again…. school clothes and supplies, lunch tickets and school bus passes! Bus passes can be purchased at any time from now until the cut off date of August 9, 2017. Passes purchased after that date will result in your student(s) not being able to ride the school bus until September 6, 2017. Bus passes can be purchased by coming to the Transportation Office located at 812 E. Redwood BLVD, Brandon, SD. Our office is open from 7:00 a.m.—4:00 p.m., Monday—Friday. You can also mail a check to the Transportation Department made payable to Brandon Valley Schools or go online to our website at www.brandonvalleyschools.com and click on the webmall button.
Students living five miles or more from their school will not be charged a fee as per state law. Students requesting transportation
within 5 miles of their school will be required to purchase a bus pass.
Bus passes are $75.00 per student, per semester. The semester maximum fee is $175.00 per family.
Open enrolled students who have a pickup and a drop off point out of their assigned attendance boundary as per Board policy will be charged $150 per semester, which does not apply to the family maximum.
An open enrolled student who uses a pickup and drop off point within the boundary of the school of attendance will purchase a regular bus pass ($75.00 per semester) and will not be subject to the increased rate.
Please do not hesitate to contact us at 605-582-3514 with any questions or concerns.
We are closed from 11:30 a.m.—1:00 p.m. for lunch and errands
