The transportation of 44,000 students every day is a very important job, and one that Columbus City Schools' (CCS) staff take very seriously.
The District's bus drivers go through rigorous background checks, and must have or earn a Commercial Driver's License (with a bus endorsement from the Ohio Department of Education) before they may drive a bus.
We serve students K-12 across the district, along with the Pre-K students with IEPs being served in our CCS classrooms.
Student Bus Stop Release Information
All students in grades Pre-K thru 2nd grade must be met at the bus stop each afternoon by a parent or guardian.
Parents or guardians can grant permission for transportation to release these students without a parent or guardian by completing a “ School Bus Drop-Off Permission Slip” which can be obtained by your student's bus driver.
