Beginning the first day of classes, Temple ISD Transportation operates a Misrouted Student Center at the Transportation Department (. The purpose of the Center is to provide a safe and central location for students who are still on the bus at the end of their route or were mistakenly placed on the wrong route.
Students discovered to be misrouted will be reported by drivers through transportation dispatch to the Center. The student will remain on the bus through the end of the middle school route, and then they will then be taken to the Misrouted Student Center. Once the Center is notified of a misrouted student, school representatives and parents will be notified and alternate transportation arranged. TISD School Nutrition will provide refreshments for students while they wait.
To ensure the safe handling of misrouted students, representatives from each campus will be located at the Center to receive the students. Parents and guardians will be asked to provide proof of identification before students will be released to them.
Parents are encouraged to call their neighborhood school if they believe their student has been misrouted.
