New school year; changes coming to your student’s bus ride

Published: Updated:

As we prepare to say goodbye to summer and hello to a new school year, we have learned new details about your child’s bus ride.

For the first time, during the 2023-2024 school year the School District of Lee County will introduce Student Ridership terminals.

Student Ridership Terminals

An email sent to parents explained the system.

  • Students present their ID (provided by their school) for scanning by a bar code reader.
  • They will scan the badge when they get on and off the bus.
  • This will aid the schools and parents in identifying a student’s location.

Charlotte County is testing a similar system with its year round school students. Collier County is already using the technology. Other school districts throughout the state are successfully using it as well.
