KWRL office personnel is hard at work adjusting and refining bus routes for 2019-2020 school year. Please read the questions and answers below before calling the office.

  • Registering my student - My student was register to ride this year, do we still need to register them through the Portal?

A- Yes, this year, we are uploading registered Skyward information with the district and assigning bus routes based on district information. We are requiring ALL students to register to ride the school bus for 2019-2020 school year.

  • Alternate Stops - What if we need to register an alternate stop?

A - Alternate stops are frequently used for daycare or multiple family scenarios, throughout the year. In the portal, please select "Add Additional Location". Enter that information in the appropriate fields. KWRL office staff will validate the information with the district to ensure student transportation can be provided. If the alternate stop is approved, the school bus information will be uploaded into the student profile.

  • The information in the Portal is not correct for next school year - The portal indicates my student(s) is in the elementary school, but next year they will be attending the middle school. Is this correct? And do we still need to register?

A - Yes, the information is correct. Skyward data is uploaded nightly into the portal , so the information you are seeing is current student information. After the school year ends, Skyward will automatically move and upgrade the student to the next grade includes changing of school building. Since we will not be assigning school bus routes to the portal profiles till the summer, we want the parent/guardian to validate and verify the information in the portal if the student(s) are requiring school bus transportation. Please register on the portal asap. One less thing you have to worry about during the summer.

  • When signing into the portal, I keep getting a "Unknown Error" when signing into the portal.?

A - A couple issues that maybe causing this error, first your Skyward information maybe not up to date. Therefore, reset your password through the district, (make sure is is the parent or guardian Skyward credentials and not the student Skyward credentials). Wait 24 hours or overnight before attempting to signing in again. The second issue we are seeing it parents who are using Explorer browser. Microsoft no longer supports the Explorer browser, and therefore their updates and not keeping up with current technology. We asked that you try using another browser such as Google or Fire Fox. In most cases, parents are successful registering their student(s).

  • My student is new to the district and we do not have a skyward credentials, how do we register?

A - Please register your student with the school district, once your registered, the district will send you the Skyward credential information. Once you receive and reset your password, wait 24 hours or overnight before attempting to signing in again. If it's the summer and the district office is out of the office, you will need to wait for the district office to register your student into the Skyward system. FYI - Each school district has their own procedure on when they will issue Skyward credentials, please reach out to your district office for further details. Until then, your student registration maybe delayed until this process is completed.

  • When will the bus route information be uploaded into the portal?

A - We have posted 2 weeks before the school start dates. At two week before the school start date, please sign back into the portal, and your bus route information will be uploaded into the student profile. In addition, KWRL will send notification to your registered email when the bus information is uploaded into the portal.

  • My student has a IEP and is a special needs student, do I register them through the portal?

A - Special needs student(s), require much more detailed information for bus routes. Therefore, at this time, special needs bus assignments will work through the IEP, district office and the KWRL special needs coordinator for bus transportation.

  • How does the Google sign in work in the portal?

A - If attempting to use Google sign in the portal, your Gmail address must be registered and associated in the Skyward data. Once your click into the Portal, click on the "Sign in with Google" radio button. (located at the bottom left of the portal sign in page.
