"A Tradition of Excellence"
Rochester CUSD 3A Schools are located in Rochester, IL 
and strive to provide excellence in education for all students pre-K through grade 12. 
Currently, we have five main education centers and an administrative center.  


The Transportation Department has provided a link to a form to request transportation for the 2016-2017 school year. All current and new bus riders must be registered for transportation. In order to enable district staff to prevent over or under loading of buses, it is important that all parents register. The deadline for online transportation requests for next year is June 3, 2016.


Before you register please keep the following in mind:

  • All current and new bus riders must be registered for transportation.

  • Bus riders are allowed a maximum of two drop-off/pick-up locations; one regular stop and one alternate stop may be designated.

  • RHS students who live within 1.5 miles of school are not eligible for transportation.

Finally, as you plan for the 2016-2017 school year, please keep in mind that only changes requested within 48 hours of the change will be made--except in the event of an emergency. Last minute changes in transportation can jeopardize the safety of students, and lead to confusing situations for young children. If you have any additional questions concerning this matter, please contact the Transportation Department at 498-9834.

Thank you for your continued support of Rochester Schools.
