    Transportation Forms Available for Non-Public Schools  

    School district residents who desire transportation for children to non-public schools located outside Mechanicville for the school year beginning September are advised that a written transportation request must be filed by Apr. 1 in the business office located at the Jr./Sr. high school complex.

    School law stipulates that student transportation will be provided to non-public schools located within 15 miles of the child’s home.

    A new transportation request form must be filled out each school year for each child and for each school selected. Parents are advised to contact the school for information regarding transportation and not wait to receive it from the private school. 

    Request forms can be found here.

    All written requests should be mailed by the Apr. 1 deadline to:

    Mechanicville Public Schools
    Business Office
    25 Kniskern Avenue
