Code of Conduct

We view bus service as an extension of the classroom experience, therefore all KIPPsters are expected to exhibit the same behavior practices when on the bus as they do in the classroom. The Student Code of Conduct applies to everyone both on the school bus and at the bus stop. Please see below to reacquaint yourself with our student discipline policies and parent
expectations.

Frequently Asked Questions

I submitted a request form for a bus stop near my home after school started. What happens next?

You will hear back from someone on our transportation team within five business days of your request with an update on your waitlist status. Please note, filling out the form does not automatically guarantee a new bus stop. The form also does not register your student for transportation. Please register your student for transportation in SchoolMint.

Are your buses owned and operated by KIPP Texas?

We are proud to partner with transportation vendors who share our commitment to the safety and access to high-quality education of our KIPPsters. We work with both First Student and Hop, Skip, Drive, depending on the geographic zone.

I have multiple KIPPsters at more than one campus and they ride different buses. Can I still use the FirstView Parent app to track their buses?

Yes, you are able to track multiple bus routes in the app.

How are bus routes determined?

Bus routes are created internally, using the latest technology in school transportation routing.
