Division adopts new bus safety technology

The Division is pleased to announce that we will be enhancing the safety of our transportation services.

This includes installing interior cameras on all buses that service our schools. 

In addition, stop arm cameras and predictive stop-arm systems are also being installed on buses that service our rural communities. This will include areas where local bylaws allow the use of stop arms and 8-way red light flashing systems. 

These technologies are currently being installed and will be completed for the start of the 2021-22 school year. 

Additional Information on Predictive Stop Arm Systems

I am new to the Division how do I apply for busing?

If you are new to the division please call the transportation department at the Division office at 780-459-7711 and we can assist you with the process.

Do you need to cancel your bus application?

Notifying the driver or not riding the bus does not constitute cancellation of busing.

Please use the form in the Parent Portal labelled "Bus Cancellation." Return your child's bus pass to the school office to complete the process. Please note cancellations cannot be completed verbally, all cancellations must be in writing to the Division transportation department using the Parent Portal forms.

Will I receive a refund if I cancel my child's busing?

If you cancel prior to the first day of school and have paid your busing fees, you will receive a full refund. Cancellations after the first day of school will receive a refund for full months remaining in the school year. There will be no refunds or reduction in fees assigned after January 31 of the current school year.
