Does the school provide transportation?
Innovation Early College buses are provided by each traditional high school in district attendance zones. Students will be transported from home directly to the campus of ECU. Students will return home directly from the school. At this time PCS transportation has the capability to assign students to a bus and to give a more exact estimate of when the bus pick up and drop off times are scheduled.
Transportation changes must be made in person by a parent or guardian. According to PCS policy, a student cannot change his/her bus pick-up/drop-off location, nor can it be changed through a phone call. All changes must be made in person by a parent or guardian. Pick up and drop off areas may not alternate, these locations must remain a permanent part of the route. The route, route times, stop locations, and bus drivers are directed by the Pitt County Schools Transportation Department and not Innovation Early College administration.
If changes need to be made to the usual mode of transportation a student will need to present a written note from the parent.
For more detailed information about routes or how to add/drop your student from the bus, please contact the school at 252.737.3060.
