Start of School | Student Transportation

Priority Overview

Local Education Agencies (LEAs) are required to submit a series of transportation data to initiate transportation services for eligible students. Data submissions are critical for OSSE to properly prepare for the school year and support our students and school partners.

For questions, please contact Jason Campbell at [email protected].

Top Things to Know
  • OSSE DOT’s Transportation Request Form (TRF) status website is available for LEAs to monitor their ESY TRF submissions for the 2024-25 school year. This website provides transparency for LEAs and their leaders to monitor the TRF submissions of the students that are eligible for transportation services.   
  • Once the school year begins, OSSE has up to ten days (after TRF submission) to prepare safe, secure, and efficient routes in processing TRFs.   
  • Students who are new to your LEA in 2023-24 will not appear in the Integrated Data System (IDS) until the LEA where the student was previously enrolled exits the students, and you, the LEA receiving the student, have transitioned your student information systems to the new school year.  
  • OSSE DOT provides an LEA reimbursement policy for special circumstances at the start of school to ensure all eligible students have access to transportation when their school year begins.  
  • The routing of eligible students and timely delivery of transportation services are dependent upon timely and accurate student data submission via the TRF (i.e., sharing student address, attending school, telephone numbers, etc.).
