Frequently Asked Questions

Does Tolleson provide bus transportation for students?

We do provide bus transportation for our students, though we consider it a privilege and not a right. In order to ride the bus, students must obey all bus rider safety rules and provide the driver with an atmosphere that will allow him or her to direct full attention to safe driving.

To ensure that the district accomplishes its objective of providing safe and efficient transportation of students to and from school, the following rules for bus passengers have been adopted by the Transportation Department:

  • Observe classroom conduct
  • Be courteous; use no profane language
  • Do not eat or drink on bus (except water)
  • Keep the bus clean
  • Cooperate with the driver
  • Do not smoke
  • Do not damage bus or equipment
  • Stay in your seat
  • Keep head, hands, and feet inside bus
  • Do not fight, push, or shove
  • Do not tamper with bus equipment
  • Do not bring pets on bus
  • Do not bring flammable material on the bus
  • The driver is authorized to assign seats
  • Have a safe trip

For more information regarding bus transportation, please see the Student Procedures Handbook.

All students wishing to transfer a class must complete the request to transfer by the second week of the semester unless the reason for the request is based upon inappropriate placement.

A student may withdraw from a class without penalty through the end of the second week of the semester. After the second week, a student must have a passing grade in order to withdraw without penalty. A student who withdraws with a failing grade will have a grade of F on the permanent transcripts.
