School Year 2018-19
IMPORTANT - Students are expected to ride, regularly, the provided CTE shuttles. If there are no regular riders, those CTE shuttles will be discontinued. Students may choose to self-transport or carpool. If so, they need to commit to the decision for the entire semester or year. Students who do not ride the CTE shuttle, must complete the Self Transportation paperwork and submit it to the home high school. This includes both drivers and all passengers in private vehicles. To avoide a parking ticket, student drivers must display a CTE sticker to park at a CTE Center. Ticketing begins the second week of school. CTE parking stickers are given out at the home high school when paperwork is turned in.
Do any of the CTE Magnet Program classes require students to provide transportation?
Yes. Some CTE classes require self-transportation. See a current Course Description Handbook available at each home high school. CTE program classes are listed within the Career and Technical Education Program section of the handbook. Look for a "car" icon indicating which classes have the requirement.
Can students drive to an off campus CTE Center for their CTE classes?
With parent permission and a completed Self Transportation form turned into a home high school. students may drive or carpool to any of the CTE Centers. Complete a Self Transportation Form and submit it to the home high school. (For students "drivers", once they submit the completed form and documentation, they will receive a CT sticker. This sticker is designed to be adhered to the home high school parking tag. By having a sticker, students will not be ticketed when parking at a CTE Center.
Where do I catch my CTE shuttle?
CTE Shuttles load/unload in the main bus loading zones at each large home high school. An exception is at the CTE Center on the MHS Campus. CTE students getting dropped off and picked up returning to their home high schools load/unload closer to the center given it is in a seperate building.
What do I need to know if I am a student attending an Academy school (Eagle, Central, Meridian)?
If you are scheduled to take an off campus CTE Magnet Program class and depend on busing, you must catch the morning CTE shuttle bus at your attendance-zoned high school and ride it to the tech center. The return bus after you complete class, will return you to the Academy. If scheduled in an afternoon tech center class, you will ride a shuttle bus to class and your return bus will take you back to your zoned home high school. In other words, you will not go back to the Academy at the end of the day.
