Bus Transportation Registration Changes

There will be changes to the Transportation Registration procedures for the 2019-2020 school year. Beginning April 15, 2019 the Stillwater Area Public Schools Transportation Department will no longer be directly accepting transportation registration forms for the 2019-2020 school year. These changes will streamline the information flow and speed the processing time of route changes immediately prior to publication. Note: Any families signing up for the current school year may still send forms directly to Stillwater Area Public Schools Transportation Department.
