Hello Parents and Families,

As you are aware transportation changes are being made for the new school year. Charter school law identifies the chartering school, Erie’s Public Schools (EPS), being required to offer the same transportation services as they provide for their students. The current plan has recently been relayed to us and includes the utilization of EMTA. EPS has identified distance markers for who qualifies for an EMTA bus pass and includes: 1.5 miles for Middle school and 2 miles for High School students. Bus passes will only be issued upon the completion of an EPS form, that will be disseminated to our families by the end of the month. All forms must be returned by September 5th. Additionally, CSE has always been consistent with offering a safe, small, learning environment so our students may concentrate on being successful in school. As a result, we are going to explore yellow bus services for our middle school students living outside of the 1.5 mile radius. More information will be posted later today or tomorrow at the latest.

Thank you for choosing CSE and we will continue to provide you with the best options possible for transporting your children to school.

Thank you,
Dr. Nick Viglione
