Transportation
It is our mission to creatively use the funding we receive as a charter school to maximize educational opportunities. Carpools and the City Bus system are the two main modes of transportation used by RCHS students.
NOTE TO ALL DRIVERS:
» Watch for messages related to Student Parking and Traffic Flow on the RCHS website, in the Phoenix News and posted in RCHS's Main Office.
» Be courteous.

How to Arrange a Carpool

The carpool form is now active. Submit your information here! Any families who wish to make new carpool arrangements for the 2018-2019 school year must submit information to our Carpool Database by completing the Carpool Interest Form.

Your information will added to a contact list which will be distributed to other RCHS families who would like to arrange carpools. Updated versions of the contact list and map will be distributed via email in mid-June, mid-July, and early-August. Once you receive this information, you are free to contact other families for purposes of forming a carpool. Completing the Carpool Form does not guarantee a workable carpool or any other means of transportation.

NOTE: Returning families, please help us in welcoming our new families by including your information so that new families who live near you will have the option to participate in your carpool.

Questions? Contact carpool@raleighcharterhs.org to reach the Phoenix Parents Carpool Coordinator. Please include your student's name.


Parking Permits

The spring parking permit lottery for the 2018-2019 school year has closed. Students who did not enter the parking lottery this spring will have an opportunity to purchase a parking permit on the first day of school, after those who entered the lottery.
