In order to operate the most efficient school bus routes each year, ALL interested students must register to ride the school bus through our registration and payment portal. Guidelines and an overview of how bus routes are developed and bus stops are determined may be found HERE. It is always at the discretion of the parent to determine whether or not the CPS transportation program meets the needs of their family. Please click HERE to register and pay for student bus transportation for the 2019-2020 school year. A tutorial including screenshots may be found HERE to assist in processing your registration on the MCC portal.
You will be required to provide your child's first name, last name, and LASID (student ID) to register them for school bus transportation in the MCC portal. You may find your child's student ID in the X2 Family Portal. Click FAMILY in the top tab (just below your name on the left side of the screen), and a list of each child associated with your family is displayed. Please note that if you have both existing and incoming students, you may need to adjust the filter (looks like a funnel) and select "all records." Click on the name of your child and you will see a field for student ID displayed (on the left side of the page just under your child's name). The student ID typically begins with 5500. You will need the entire student ID number to complete the registration/payment process in MCC eSCHOOL. Please note that each child is registered separately in the MCC portal. Please be sure to register each child who will be using school bus transportation.
If you are new to the Chelmsford Public Schools and have not yet received an X2 Family Portal account, you will receive a separate email from the Transportation Department that will include your child’s LASID (student ID) to allow you to register for the school bus. You will also receive an X2 Family Portal welcome letter in August before school starts.
