Transportation to Private and Parochial Schools
Eligibility for Transportation to Private/Parochial Schools is in accordance with the School District policy and can be found under the eligibility section of this page. For students who are new to the District and require transportation, please complete and return a Transportation Request Form within 30 days of establishing residency. Request forms must also be completed and returned annually for continued transportation. In compliance with New York State Education Law § 3635, complete and return the request by April 1st, preceding the beginning of the next school year. If the school of attendance has yet to be determined, please fill out one form for each possible school. The Transportation Department must be notified of the final school choice by July 1st, preceding the beginning of the next school year. Private and Parochial School Request forms can be found here*.
Transportation to non-public schools is generally provided within a consortium. Services are provided to four districts within that consortium, Bronxville, Eastchester, Pelham, and Tuckahoe. This means that students from all four districts may be transported together to non-public schools. The consortium is managed by Southern Westchester BOCES. This means that you will be contacted by SW BOCES regarding transportation information to non-public schools. The current supervisor at SW BOCES transportation is Rob Lehning and he can be reached at 914-428-9300. Mr. Lehning is responsible for creating routes and day to day management of the consortium. Families must still apply for transportation each year with the Eastchester UFSD Transportation Department.
