To be eligible for transportation reimbursement, all districts require families to complete a reimbursement request form at the beginning of the school year. Heilicher provides a list of eligible students to each district by October 15 of each school year. At the end of the school year, Heilicher files a final report with each district as to the number of days your child attended school. Reimbursements are based on attendance and are remitted to Heilicher after the completion of the school year.
You will be notified by email near the beginning of the next school year of the amount of reimbursement remitted to Heilicher on behalf of your child for the prior school year. Many families choose to donate part or all of their reimbursements to the school; this is greatly appreciated. Families who do not receive financial assistance from Heilicher will receive an email notification of the amount of your transportation reimbursement and will be asked if you would like to make a donation or would like to have funds returned to you by check. If you make a donation to the school, you will then receive a receipt for this donation for income tax purposes. Transportation refunds will be sent no later than mid-February of the following year.
