  • Transportation Update - 9/21/22

    Interim Director of Transportation, Angela Furtado, is still processing the Change Request and Opt-out Forms to de-assign and re-assign students to buses. This is an ongoing effort as families complete the Transportation Change Request form. If a family receives a bus assignment, but does not need the seat, we kindly ask them to complete the  Opt-Out Form  so that new seat assignments can be created for families who need transportation.

    That Google Form now collects Opt-outs, refund requests, concerns, and bus stop change requests.

    The Edulong Parent Portal Lite application works for many families - although we are still hearing about some challenges. The guidance that has helped some is to uninstall the app, reinstall the app, and then use the bus code provided in the bus assignment email as the District Code. We are working on receiving specific guidance from the app developer to assist with this. We appreciate patience and grace from families who are looking to utilize the bus tracker app.

  • Transportation Update - 9/6/22

    In the weeks leading up to the school start, Interim Director of Transportation, Angela Furtado, prepared bus routes, sent bus information, reviewed the Change Request and Opt-out Forms to de-assign and re-assign students to buses. This is an ongoing effort that continues as we approach the 2nd week of school. If a family receives a bus assignment, but does not need the seat, we kindly ask them to complete the Opt-Out Form so that new seat assignments can be created for families who need transportation.

    The Edulong Parent Portal Lite application has had some challenges. It was not live at the start of school, but is slowly beginning to work for various buses. The guidance that has helped some is to uninstall the app, reinstall the app, and then use the bus code provided in the bus assignment email as the District Code. We are working on receiving specific guidance from the app developer to assist with this. We appreciate patience and grace from families who are looking to utilize the bus tracker app.

    Framingham Public School buses are equipped to monitor bus activity with the use of audio and visual recordings. School Administration generally requests to review the footage when a situation on a bus has been brought to their attention. Our current vendor, NRT Bus, may review footage for employee performance evaluations.
