Private and Parochial School Transportation

NYS requires the school district to report the school of attendance for all school-aged children who live in the district.  As a parent/guardian of child(ren) who attend private or parochial schools, it is necessary to first register as a resident of the Rhinebeck Central School District.  Please contact the Office of Registration at (845) 871-5500 ext. 6560 located at 48 Knollwood Rd, Rhinebeck, NY.  Click here for our school letter and NYSED pamphlet “A Guide to the New Rules for School Registration”.

Per New York State Education Law, a new Transportation Request form must be submitted to the district prior to April 1, 2024 to receive transportation for the 2024-25 school year.  This must be done every year, even if you are currently receiving transportation.  Forms are available in the Business Office at Rhinebeck CSD, private and parochial school offices or can be downloaded from the link below.

Failure to meet the April 1 deadline requires a written explanation as to why the deadline was missed.  This written of explanation does not guarantee the request will be granted.  Late requests can only be accommodated, after the deadline, if there is no additional cost to the district.  It is our recommendation to apply for Transportation even if there is a chance you will not need it.  You can cancel the request for transportation if not needed later.  If you decide to change the school of attendance after completing the application, you must notify the Rhinebeck CSD Business Office before the April 1st deadline.

Transportation requests cannot be processed until registration with the district has been completed.
