A Special Message From HISD Transportation for Magnet School Parents

I have important news to share with you concerning bus transportation for your campus.

As you may know, this is a critical time for the Houston Independent School District. As a district, we’re continually being asked to do more with less. Not only are we required to send millions of our local tax dollars to the state, we’re also still trying to recover — physically and financially — from the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey.

Despite the challenges, we are still tasked with ensuring our students have the support they need to learn — no matter the district’s financial state. For Transportation Services, that includes a continued review of what we do well as well as what we need to improve upon to ensure we are offering the best and most efficient service to our students.
