Bus and Taxi
Adelaide East Education Centre has a practice and expectation of good communication between the school and families over the issue of bus and taxi transport. School staff have the duty of care to ensure that students board their bus/taxi safely after school.
The Department for Education provides transport assistance in the form of car reimbursement, public transport grant or taxi transport for students with disabilities to attend the nearest special facility. An application form to access this service is available from the school.
Students are expected to be ready 10 minutes before the agreed pick up time. Similarly at the end of the day a parent or carer is expected to be home to receive their child 10 minutes before the agreed drop off time. Taxi companies are in a position to charge families for any waiting time.
It is the responsibility of the family to contact the driver if their child is not attending school. The school must also be notified of a student absence.
Please read our Bus - Taxi Policy for more information.
