In the past Fort McMurray Christian School has not provided transportation to and from school for students. Parents depended mainly on car pooling and details are usually worked out amongst parents during the first week of school. This practice is still used by a number of families.
As an alternative school under the umbrella of FMPSD, transportation for our students by FMPSD is not mandated for the 2011-2012 school year. Negotiations, however, have allowed bussing of students under the category of a “Choice School”.
Choice Schools: If parents choose to enroll their child in a school outside of their designated attendance boundary, they are responsible for transportation services. These students may access transportation services on a priority basis – eligible, user pay, and then choice students provided there is an existing yellow bus route available. If no route is in effect, the public transit system could be utilized by the student.
Rates for a choice school are: $400.00 per student (approximately $1.99 per day).
This opportunity should be available for subsequent years.
If this is an opportunity that you would like to explore, please contact the school office.
