Aid in Lieu

Many districts in New Jersey offer transportation or help offset the cost of transportation to private school when students do not attend their local public school. The current reimbursement is $1,165 per eligible student and is known as aid in lieu of transportation. If a town participates in aid in lieu, the eligibility is determined by the distance between home and school. Students in grades K-8 must live more than 2.0 miles but less than 20 miles. High school students must live more than 2.5 miles but less than 20 miles. Please check with your school district for specific aid in lieu participation and eligibility information. Note: You don’t need to pay for EC shuttle service to be eligible. If you drive your student to school, you may be eligible to receive this aid!

Frequently Asked Questions:

How do I sign up for the shuttle service?

Please fill out the shuttle request form on our forms page.

Contact sethstadtlander@easternchristian.org if you have questions.

How do I know if I qualify for the $1,000 Aid-in-lieu from my town?

Please contact your local Board of Education to verify. Then file a B6T Form with EC’s Transportation Coordinator. Forms can be found here.

Is my Pre-K or Transitional Kindergarten child eligible to ride the shuttle?

No. The state of New Jersey requires that all bus riders be enrolled in a kindergarten class (or above) and are 5 years old before October 1st.

I live in New York State, do I have transportation options? 

New York State does cover the cost of busing some NY students to EC. Your district will be able to tell you if you qualify. The process to secure busing must be done through your local NY Board of Education. You can find general information here and helpful contact information here.

Please note the April 1 deadline to apply for the following school year.
