Private/Parochial School Transportation Information

  • Parents of children attending private or parochial schools for the 2022-2023 school year are required by law to file a formal request for transportation for their children on or before April 1, 2022

    It's possible transportation will not be provided for your child for one of the following reasons: (i) the distance from your home to the school is greater than 15 miles; (ii) the decision to enroll in a private or parochial school is made after April 1; (iii) the application is not submitted by April 1. If transportation is not provided for any of these reasons, the cost and responsibility for arranging transportation will rest with the parent/guardian. Transportation is not provided on the following days: Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veteran's Day, Thanksgiving Day and the day after, Christmas Day, New Year's Day, MLK Jr Day, President's Day, Memorial Day and any day declared as a public holiday by the POTUS or the Governor. Transportation is not provided for orientation days prior to the opening of the Plainview-Old Bethpage Central School District. Transportation is not provided to private or parochial schools when the POB school district is closed due to inclement weather. When the POB school district operates on a delayed schedule due to inclement weather, the private and parochial buses will also operate under that delayed schedule.

     

    Kindergarten students must be registered with the Plainview-Old Bethpage school district before transportation can be applied for. You can contact the District Registrar at (516) 434-3074 or via email at registration@pobschools.org.

     

    For the 2022-2023 school year, the Plainview-Old Bethpage School District will be collecting applications electronically. We will not be accepting paper applications. The website will allow you to enter separate applications for each child. Applications do not carry over from school year to school year, new applications need to be submitted each year.
