Transportation

BUSES

If you have any bus-related complaints throughout the year, please use this link to log your complaint. This is the way that CCSD tracks bus issues and shares them with Durham. I have found that when we use this form, there is generally a swift response.

Early College High School will develop intellectually confident and independent people who seize opportunity to continually better themselves, their communities, and the world.
