Temporary Busing to Overflow Campuses

Frisco ISD provides free transportation to new students required to attend an overflow campus. Families may provide transportation or have their students ride the bus to and from the overflow campus.

Overflow campuses are needed temporarily when the zoned home campus reaches capacity and is closed to additional enrollment. Typically, closed campuses reopen in 1-2 years after attendance boundary modifications are approved. Once the home campus can resume enrolling new students, traditional transportation policies go into effect.

Apply for Temporary Transportation

Step 1: Register with Frisco ISD.

Step 2: Finalize the registration with the data clerk at the overflow campus.

Step 3: Complete the campus overflow bus registration form linked below if applicable.

Step 4: Await an email from the Transportation Department for busing details and information regarding the bus cards that students must show the driver each morning and afternoon.

  • Elementary students will get bus cards from the overflow campus before riding the bus. 

  • Middle school students will get a bus card from their driver on the first day they ride the bus.

Temporary Transportation Logistics 

New students who live within two miles of their home-zoned, closed-enrollment campus can sign up to ride the bus from the closed-enrollment campus to the overflow campus. 

  • Students are responsible for being at the closed enrollment campus at the appropriate time for them to ride the bus to the overflow campus. 

  • The bus will return students to the closed enrollment campus at the end of the school day. 

New students who live more than two miles from their home-zoned, closed-enrollment campus can sign up to ride the bus from a designated bus stop location to the overflow campus. 

  • Bus stop information will be provided via email and will not be listed on the District’s online bus routing system. 

  •  New students should be sure to use the designated stop assigned through Transportation for the overflow campus instead of the stops listed online for the closed enrollment campus.  

Two-Mile Rule
The distance a student lives from their home zoned campus is determined by measuring from the school's flagpole to the curb in front of their home, and vice versa, using the shortest trafficable route. Families should refrain from relying on online maps to make this determination and email williamsf@friscoisd.org to verify distance.
