The Port Neches-Groves Independent School district provides transportation for all eligible students. Every effort will be made to see that the transportation provided is safe, comfortable, and pleasant. To assure this type of transportation, it is necessary that there be cooperation between school, students, and parents. We will not allow any students to stop the District from providing a safe, comfortable, and pleasant ride. For these reasons, we are providing Transportation Rules and Regulations so all concerned will be familiar with the transportation procedures.
We ask that you read and discuss the contents of the Transportation Rules and Regulations with your student to promote a clear understanding of the responsibilities and expectations for all parties involved.
Please contact Mr. Matt Burnett, Director of Transportation, if you have any questions or concerns about the Port Neches-Groves ISD transportation system.
