3) My family has applied and qualified for free and reduced lunch but I received a notice telling me I need to pay a bus fee. Do I need to pay the fee?

(Back to Top)

No, families who qualify for free and reduced lunch do not pay the bus fee but must provide approval letter to the school for their fee to be waived.


4) My child is a special needs student – do I need to pay the bus fee?

(Back to Top)

If your student has an IEP and is eligible for transportation as a related service, you do not have to pay.


5) I have not applied for a waiver nor made payment for the bus fees. Will my child still be able to ride the bus?

(Back to Top)

There will be a two-week grace period for parents to complete the registration process and pay their bus fees.


6) What is the refund policy?

(Back to Top)

All refunds must be approved by Transportation. Please contact Sandy Gallegos Transportation Analyst at 303-982-2562.

  • Refunds for first semester will not be issued after October 1, 2016 or for second semester after March 1, 2017.

7. My child has moved to a Jeffco school mid-year; do we get a pro-rated fee?

(Back to Top)

Students who relocate into Jeffco after October 31 or April 30 do not have to pay fees until the next semester. Prior to those dates, they will owe the $75/$100 fee for the current semester.


8) My student has moved from one Jeffco school to another Jeffco school. Will my bus pass still work?

(Back to Top)

Yes, bus passes are valid district wide unless you change from a neighborhood school to an option school in which case you would have to pay an additional $25 per semester because option schools have a higher fee.
