As far as buses go I am pretty sure it is >1.5miles like was mentioned but if the route to school goes through what is considered a dangerous intersection you can take the bus for much shorter routes. I am .6miles from Jordan Middle but because the route to school goes through the gauntlet of Richland Hills and Military we qualify for the bus (but I drive her to school).

As far as Elementary goes in NISD it was YMCA and then changed to Learning Tree but some schools have changed back to YMCA. My daughter used it through 4th grade and the Y was $210/mo for after care. Once they changed to Learning Tree I just had her come home after school. (I work from home)

If the OP ends up at the Can Plant and Hawthorne, they won't need the bus. Hawthorne is basically on the other side of the Pearl. Cross the Pearl grounds, go down to the river at the ampitheatre, cross the river bridge, under the street, come up across from Hawthorne. It's maybe 5 minutes, unless your kid is a dwadler

In NEISD, you will receive bus service if you are more than 2 miles from the school, or would need to walk or cross a hazardous situation (no cross walks, etc.) There is no additional charge for bus service.

After school care is a program called KIN, and costs $175/month at the elementary level, and $50/month at the middle school level. KIN is run by NEISD (community education), and is available every day that school is in session until 6:30 pm. Most elementary schools in NEISD end at 2:30 or 2:40 pm.

ONLY state I experienced this in was Hawaii (but our youngest is now 23 and that is old info)...when stationed in Hawaii...they would PICK the kid up EVEN if they did not have the school bus money...but would REFUSE to take them home (what a racket!!) That was a LONG time ago, but quite the racket....

Our neighbors moved here from Hawaii about 5 years ago, said the same thing!

Chiming in late, NEISD also provides "free" all day kindergarten. Bus service is provided if you live at least 2 miles from the school, I believe that is the current criteria.
