• Transportation Department

    Student safety is our number one priority. Approximately 2,600 students safely ride to and from school each day.  The responsibility for the safe transportation of school children is a joint effort and must be shared by parents, students, and school personnel, in addition to, school bus drivers and supervisors.  Children are transported, due the following reasons: Special Education, Distance, and Hazard.  Students are picked up at designated bus stops or home school pick up points, and in some cases, at the residence based on the child's Individualized Education Program (IEP).
    • Special Education

    The District provides transportation to approximately 1,600 special education students.  This service is provided regardless of the proximity of the child's home; the District transports to the child's school of attendance based on the child's Individualized Education Program (IEP).

    • Distance and Hazard 

    On a limited basis, approximately 800 students are transported because of distance and grade level, and/or, the walking route they take from home to school and back is potentially hazardous.  This ranges from students who must cross freeway off-ramps, railroad tracks, or other potentially hazardous conditions, as determined by the Board of Education.

    • Additional Transportation

    The Santa Ana Unified School District Transportation Department provides transportation services for students in ROP, NJROTC, sports programs, non-public programs, and approximately 4,500 field trips each year.
