Maps and transport

Parents/carers must be aware that a change in the residential address of a student will necessitate a review of any transport arrangements through the transport assistance scheme for students with disabilities.

It is the responsibility of all parents/carers to transport their sons/daughters to school. Some students who attend Beenleigh Special School may be eligible for transport assistance if it is required by parent/carers. The criteria for this support is increasingly strict and assistance is reviewed each year. Transport can only be considered if it is determined that it is the only reasonable manner in which the child can travel to and from school. This is determined through stringent guidelines provided by Education Queensland. 

Taxi or supervised bus transport is arranged through the Regional Education staff and Education Queensland, and requires that a formal enrolment process is completed before an application is lodged through the school. This approval process might take some time. If transport support is approved, parents/carers must ensure that school administration is informed well in advance of any permanent or temporary changes that may be requested to travel arrangements (including transport to Respite Centres), as this will take several days to arrange.
