Each school has a defined catchment area for determining eligibility for transportation. Transportation for out of area students will be the responsibility of the parent.

For students registering in a Specialized Pathway Program (i.e. French Immersion, International Baccalaureate/Power Pack), transportation will be provided. 

Yearly bus forms are available by contacting [email protected]. The form will be filled in by the guidance department. A parent/guardian signature is required and the form must be approved by the I. E. Weldon Principal.

A home school is defined as the school in the catchment area where the student resides. If the student is registered in a specific program, the home school would be the school offering that Pathway program. If the student withdraws from that particular program, their home school immediately becomes the school where the student resides and transportation is discontinued at the end of the semester to the pathway school.

For further information, please refer to the TLDSB Transportation Procedure
