Pre-K/EI Rider System Updates

As of June1, 2014, the Summer 2014 -15 Pre-K/EI Rider System will be open.

The Office of Pupil Transportation has made some minor changes to the Pre-K/EIRider System and Summer Pre-K/EI Rider System. The first change you may notice is that when you log into the Pre-K/EI Rider System there is a message "Summer Address Change". 

What you are being asked is: "Do you intend to change your location for the summer session?" i
f you click on "Yes", you will be prompted to enter the anticipated address or location of your summer program and the date you expect to start service there. If you select "No" and click on "Submit", then you will proceed to the Rider System.

The second change that you will notice is that under "Site Information" in the ribbon we have added two new fields. One is called "Site Category" and the other is called "Program Type".  In the "Site Category" field, it will indicate if your site is public or non-public. In the "Program Type" field, it will indicate that your program is either a 10 month or 12 month program. If all of the information is correct, you do not need to do anything. If any of the information is incorrect, you need to change it by clicking on "Edit School" and editing the information as necessary.

On the "Student Search" ribbon, under the "OSIS/Student #" category, if you are uncertain or do not know the child's ID number but you know the last name of the student you are looking for, you can enter the last name of the student in the box below the "OSIS/Student ID#" and if you click on "Search", the system will return entries for all students with that last name.

As of June1, 2014, the Summer 2014 -15 Pre-K/EI Rider System will be open.
