Frequently Asked Questions for Families

  • Transportation will be provided to students who reside two or more miles from the student’s newly assigned home campus, or if the students must cross a hazard, such as a highway or a railroad crossing. In addition, transportation will be provided through the choice hub system for students that have been accepted to an SAISD Choice School. 

    For students receiving special education or Section 504 services, transportation will continue to be provided if the student's ARD/§504 Committee has previously determined that it is required as a related service. *Transportation will also be provided for students who qualify for McKinney-Vento to and from their school of origin. 
    Transportation will not be guaranteed for students that choose a different SAISD neighborhood school other than the newly assigned home campus.

    *School of origin: The school in which the child/youth was enrolled when they became homeless or the school in which the child/youth was last enrolled. 

  • SAISD values voice and choice for both students and families. Families are empowered to choose a campus that best meets the needs of their child. Each family will be provided with a newly assigned home campus recommended by the district; they can also follow the student enrollment options.

  • We are committed to providing direct support to families to ensure a smooth transition to a new campus, including completing enrollment for students after preferences are indicated on an interest survey.
