  • Does the school provide transportation?

    Posted by:

    Innovation Early College buses are provided by each traditional high school in district attendance zones.  Students will be transported from home to the traditional high school in their attendance area and then via shuttle to the campus of ECU. Students will return home directly from the school instead of via shuttle from the traditional high school. On days when Pitt County Schools are not in session, buses will pick students up school. On days when Pitt County Schools are not in session, buses will pick students up from their home/bus stop and bring them directly to Innovation Early College and return the same way. Mrs. Rutledge 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.
