    With the goal of safety in mind, FCS Transportation is requiring that all families with children who will be riding the school bus complete a short & simple verification process before the start of the 2019-20 school year.  Links to complete the 2019-20 FCS School Bus Verification Form can be found on the Forsyth County School website at https://www.forsyth.k12.ga.us/Page/51826.


    Please understand that this is for the safety of your student(s) and not intended to be an inconvenience.
