NEW AND FINAL PROCEDURE BUS STOP WALK RANGE
The bus stop walk range is defined as the maximum walking distance from a student's residential address to the student's assigned stop location. The stop range for Elementary School students is one quarter mile, for Middle School students it is one half mile, for High School students it is one mile. Due to time constraints, and bus passenger capacity, the maximum walk range for Magnet campuses, designated Academies and special programs approved for cross-town busing, is one and a quarter mile. Landmark locations, such as AISD school campuses, may be used to accommodate the most students possible in a timely and efficient manner.
AISD BUS STOP FINDER
LASA Students can travel to LASA on Magnet Bus Routes provided by AISD. To find a student's route and closest bus stop, use the AISD Bus Stop Finder.
AM BUS ROUTES
LASA has transportation service for most neighborhoods in Austin. The morning buses are shared by both Kealing Middle School and LASA students for efficiency of routes (go to each neighborhood once) and also to allow for buses to be able to be used later in the morning by other AISD schools. Unlike in years past, when using the AISD Bus Finder App, families can select LASA as their school choice (without having to select Kealing also). Also, note that starting in 2021-22, LASA students will remain on the bus at the Kealing stop and their bus will continue directly to LASA (in years past, LASA students caught a shuttle bus at Kealing in the AM).
PM BUS ROUTES
LASA after-school buses go directly home and do not stop at Kealing.
AUXILIARY BUS REQUEST
Should a student need to be dropped off at a different location than the student's house OR if a student needs to ride a bus different from the one assigned on a temporary basis, s/he MUST have a permit. To secure a permit, the parent or guardian needs to complete an Auxiliary Bus Rider Request and Permit and the student needs to bring that request to the LASA Main Office for the appropriate signature. The student needs to give the bus driver the form to be permitted to ride that bus.
If a student needs to ride a bus different from the one assigned on a regular basis, the parent/guardian needs to contact AISD Transportation: 414-0238.
BUS TRACKING APP: "Wheresthebus"
AISD is offering the WheresTheBusTM app to provide you with timely information about the location of your child’s bus, including when it will arrive at your stop. The WheresTheBusTM app is free to AISD families whose children ride the bus. The app is available on any device with Internet access (smartphone, tablet, personal computer, iPod)—and takes less than five minutes to install. For more information and instructions, click here. If you have any questions about bus transportation, please call 512-414-0238.
LASA LATE BUS SERVICE
Late buses will pick up in the front of our building. Students should report to the late buses at 6:30p for departure at 6:45p. If students don't immediately see their assigned late bus, they should check with each driver to determine the appropriate bus to ride in case there is a substitute bus.
If you have questions about the Late Bus, please contact Cheryl Verse 512-414-0239 or Kelly Kahoe 512-414-0237,
Coordinator for Scheduling, AISD Department of Transportation at Cheryl Verse - firstname.lastname@example.org.
