Transportation Services:

District 106 currently partners with two third-party transportation providers:
  • First Student, for regular education field trips and athletic events
  • Grand Prairie Transit, for special education transportation needs
Free transportation services for special education students are provided if included in the student’s individualized education plan (IEP). Non-public students are transported in accordance with state law, and homeless students are transported in accordance with the McKinney Homeless Assistance Act.

The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) provides a state-funded pupil transportation reimbursement program for parents/guardians to whom free busing is not provided. For more information and eligibility criteria, please access the ISBE website by clicking here.
