Getting To and From School

Decades ago, the Cheyenne Mountain Board of Education made a commitment to invest the vast majority of its budget in our schools and in student programs. This investment in our schools results in fewer resources for support services. As a result, the Cheyenne Mountain School District does not operate a bus system and does not provide student transportation to and from school. The District will arrange transportation for students whose disability requires such transportation in accordance with federal law and/or an individual student's Individual Education Program. If you have questions regarding your child's eligibility under these guidelines, please call the Office of Student Services at 719-327-2823.
