You may download the App on your smartphone by searching FirstView OR on your computer at When setting up FirstView, you will be prompted to:  1) select your state (Illinois), 2) select your district (District 30), and 3) enter your student’s ID number (available in the Parent Portal). For FirstView customer support, contact them at (888) 889-8920 or to  The FirstView App will be operational the third week of September.

Daily Bus Routes and Stops

Actual bus routes and stops are created using the addresses of students that register for transportation by July 21. Families registering for transportation after this deadline will be assigned to an existing route. In mid-September, routes are re-examined and, if necessary, altered.

In an effort to minimize the time students are on the bus, routing will include efficiencies to minimize bus route times. For example, routes will not maneuver into cul-de-sacs, gated neighborhoods, and, when possible, include neighborhood stops instead of multiple house stops.
