Bus information will be available on your child's parent portal page. 

If your student will be riding to or from school to an address other than your  home, or if you are open enrolled and will be riding from an address in the district, you must complete a variance.

A new variance is required each year. They can be filled out on line by using the variance link on the right side of this page.

The variance form even works on your smart phone. 


All Live Oaks students will be brought back to the Middle School in the afternoon and transfer to their  neighborhood bus.

That information may not appear on the parent portal for the first couple of weeks. I have attached a link on this page on the right that will take you to the Live Oaks Bus Times. 

On days that the Batavia Schools are not in session but the Oaks are in session. We will only be running the shuttle bus from the high school, that bus will depart at 7:15 AM. Students will be brought back to their home stop in the afternoons. 


Please remember that Ohio law requires that parents are responsible for their children until they enter the bus. Due to the large number of students that ride Batavia buses, we are unable to make bus stop changes to relieve parents of that responsibility. This means, unfortunately we cannot change bus stops simply to allow the parent to monitor the stop from inside their home.

The state sets minimum requirements for school transportation; our hope is to always to provide better and more convenient service than the state minimum. We must balance that with the need to be efficient and safe for all students, and so we appreciate and value the partnership with our parents.
