Coming Soon! CarpooltoSchool powered by Go Together
An online transportation matching platform for approved caregivers
We know that transportation has been a challenge for several years. The bus driver shortage really impacts our ability to transport all students who request buses, though we try our best to assign seats based on eligibility guidelines.
To try and get more students to school every day and on time, we’re launching a partnership with CarpooltoSchool powered by Go Together, which is a secure, online transportation matching platform accessible only to approved users in the community.
On November 1st, Framingham Public Schools will be inviting interested families to register with CarpooltoSchool where you can:
Request and offer rides
Meet other parents interested in pooling kids to and from school and extracurricular activities
Organize or access bikepool and walkpool matching if you live close to school but want to switch off chaperone duties with another parent in the area
Set up short-term carpools for an event, a season, or for the entire school year
CORI FORM (BACKGROUND SCREENING)
Any caregivers who are interested in using this platform to offer or seek ride support must first complete a CORI (criminal offender record information) form. This is the same form you’d need to complete to volunteer in our schools.
Once the background screening has been completed and approved, you'll receive a welcome email from CarpooltoSchool notifying you that you now have full access to start searching for families and create trips. This process can take up to 16 days (up to 14 days to receive the CORI results and up to 48 hours for the CarpooltoSchool account creation).
If you know you are interested in participating in this program and DO NOT currently have an active / approved CORI, please complete the process outlined on the Human Resources website. The Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) forms are available in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.
For approval inquiries, they can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The mission of the Framingham Public Schools is to educate each student to learn and live productively as a critically-thinking, responsible citizen in a multicultural, democratic society by providing academically challenging instructional programs taught by highly-qualified staff and supported by comprehensive services in partnership with our entire community.
