Bussing Registration process outlined for 2023/2024


Lethbridge School Division is working through a new process for registering students for transportation. This new process has presented some unforeseen challenges.  
However, regardless of whether an eligible student is registered through this new system or not, ALL eligible students will have a seat on the bus for the start of the school year on Sept. 5.

To find out how to access transportation:
Southland Transportation Ltd. has posted the route maps for 2023/2024. Please check the maps that are posted on our website by going to the Transportation tab here: TRANSPORTATION. Have your child at the closest bus stop from your residence at least five minutes prior to the scheduled pick-up time.

The registration process continues as we work through these technicalities. We are eager to implement this registration process to support future transportation planning and appreciate your patience. For the 2023/2024 school year, students eligible for transportation will be able to access transportation, regardless of whether they have registered under the new system or not.

The Bussing Registration process has begun. If you qualify for bussing, please expect an email to arrive in the next few days.  Please note, to qualify for bussing, a student must reside at least 2.4 kilometres away from their designated school.
If you received a registration form in June, you are required to re-register for the 2023/2024 school year. Sign in under your Parent Portal.

To register:
1. Access the Bussing Registration form through the Parent Portal in PowerSchool. See the instructions on how to access the form: INSTRUCTIONS.
2. If you to not have access to the Parent Portal, please contact your school for access.  School offices are set to open to the public on Wednesday, Aug. 23.
3. Once you have completed the registration process you will receive an email approving your registration
4. See the Division website the last week of August to find your bus schedule. 
Note: The new bussing distancing announced by Alberta Education, as part of Budget 2023, will not take effect until 2024/2025 School Year. More information on the new bussing distancing will be sent out in the Fall of 2023.
