Caregiver Authorization

  • With many parents or guardians working in order to meet their financial obligations, the Jackson School District receives many requests for students to be picked up or dropped off at locations other than their home.

    The Jackson Transportation will provide alternate bus stop locations for the students regular bring in and/or take home routes for the student’s school of attendance when possible.

    Transportation will be offered to caregivers, academic centers or nursery schools.

    • The alternate bus stop must be for all five days.
    • Students will be assigned one stop per route.
    • Stops will not vary from day to day. In order to maintain efficiency, we can not have a student hold a seat on two different buses for a bring in or take home route. 
    • Students will not be assigned multiple bus stops for the bring in route or the take home route.
    • Bus stop locations will remain firm for all five days of the week
    • Transportation will not be provided to caregivers located outside the sending boundary of the school of attendance.

    All caregiver requests must be RENEWED EVERY YEAR by submitting a new Caregiver Request Form to your home school.

    • The forms can be picked up at your home school or at the Transportation Department.
    • They are printed in triplicate, so they cannot be posted online for download.
    • In order for the caregiver request to be in effect for the opening of school in September, they must be submitted by mid-August each year. For the 2019-2020 school year, this deadline is August 8, 2019.
    • Caregiver forms submitted during the school year may take up to 5 working days for the change of bus stop to take effect. Caregiver changes will not be accepted during the first week of school.
