  • 2016-2017 Expanded Busing Plan

      The Pawtucket School Department is happy to announce the expansion of busing beyond grade 4 for the first time in history. The school committee has made the safety of our children in grades 5 – 8 a priority. Pawtucket historically has not bused all eligible students in grade 5 and beyond due to lack of funding. The committee vote was unanimous to keep children safe. Along with the unanimous committee vote there was the concern by members that some elementary school parents may face hardship from the later start times. Therefore, accommodations will be made for structured, morning supervision at each impacted school. 
    The policy for busing was on the public agenda on two different occasions in May 2016. Research reviewed by the policy subcommittee showed that districts that bus more students always have later and staggered times to accommodate more children who are eligible for bus services. In order to provide extended busing in grades K-8, the bus company had to stagger bus schedules to accommodate the need. This required a change in the start and end times for some schools.
    There are six (6) elementary schools that have a change in their start times. They are Baldwin, Fallon, Potter, Varieur, Cunningham and Winters. These schools will start at 9 AM. The new report time for students is at 8:40 am for breakfast.
    Parents who require early supervision due to hardship as a result of the time change impacting their employment may apply to the Early Supervision Program, which will begin at 8:10 AM.
