Is there assistance available with transportation fees?

The Aspen View Public School Board of Trustees recognizes that there may be a need to review transportation fees for some families due to hardship. When payment of transportation fees cannot be made in full, the parent(s) / guardian(s) or independent student may make written application for special consideration to the secretary/treasurer of Aspen View Public Schools at:

Aimee Hirtle
3600 48 Avenue
Athabasca, AB T9S 1M8
aimee.hirtle@aspenview.org

Any hardship request must be made annually and supported by an Application for Waiver of Fees. A confidential follow up may be required by a designated staff member.

What do transportation fees cover?

Transportation fees apply only to home-to-school student transportation.

What do transportation fees not cover?

Schools may implement additional fees for student transportation to cover field trips, extra-curricular sports, etc. Decisions on the implementation of additional transportation fees are made at the school's discretion.
