In August 2011, The Joliet Township High School Transportation Department relocated to a new 148,000 square foot facility located at 3901 Olympic Boulevard in Joliet. The centrally located facility provides improved training, office and employee space; indoor and outdoor bus parking; and a new maintenance facility. Moving the transportation center to the new facility will provide additional classroom space for the students and staff of Central Campus and Alternate School.

The cafeteria provides quality breakfast and lunch selections and ala-carte choices each day. Students pay $2.50 for a full lunch meal and $1.50 for a full breakfast. The district participates in the National School Lunch Program and is monitored by the Illinois State Board of Education and the Will County Health Department. Parents and students can pre-pay for meals by accessing the MyLunchMoney web site shown in the right column. By prepaying, parents can assure lunch money is being used for food, reduce worries about forgetting or losing money, limit the amount used each day and specify if ala-carte items can be purchased. Refunds will be issued based on the refund policy shown in the column to the right. Menus change on a daily basis, although some items are available each day. Please read the “daily announcements” for your school for today’s menu.

The textbook department is responsible for purchasing and distributing the textbooks and collecting all student fees. Monthly invoices are mailed home to notify parents of the outstanding debts. Parents can pay fees on-line, by mail or by bringing or sending the money to the textbook centers. The textbook centers accept cash, debit and credit card payments. New textbooks meeting specified criteria are chosen by teams of teachers and administrators.
The transportation department provides daily bus service to nearly 6000 students and 32 different schools throughout Joliet and the Chicagoland area. The school district owns and maintains all equipment at a facility in Joliet. The transportation department also provides a variety of vehicles for faculty to use with small groups of students. Since transportation staff are employed by the school district, the district regulates the amount and type of training provided to the staff. The transportation staff works hard to provide quality service to the students and faculty. They don’t work a “regular” school day since some routes begin before 6:00 am and the last route ends around 9:00 pm and they willingly provide service on weekends and holidays.
The district and school boundaries for the Joliet Township High School District are provided in a written format.

The boundary between Central and West Campus is regulated by the Joliet Township High School Board of Education. Please call the transportation department for additional information.
