Transportation Information for Manchester Residents

In New Hampshire, charter school students may be provided bus transportation to and from school if they legally reside in the district in which the charter school is located. As The Founders Academy is located in the city of Manchester, students who legally reside in Manchester may qualify for this service. 

The Manchester School District is responsible for determining eligibility based upon the criteria listed in their Transportation Policy. The Manchester School District will forward the bus schedule and all necessary information directly to all parents by mid-August. The district also posts this information on its website under Transportation: use the "Private School / Charter School" tab to review the schedule online. Please do not call the Manchester School District regarding this matter.

Parents / Guardians are strongly encouraged to read the information and instruct their children to behave in an appropriate manner while riding the bus. All students who qualify for bus transportation will be required to comply with the policies and procedures set forth by the Manchester School District.
