Bei der Sekundarstufe II liegt die Grenze bei 5 km. Für die Anspruchsprüfung und einen entsprechenden Antrag wenden Sie sich bitte direkt an das zukünftige Schulsekretariat. Sollte das SchokoTicket verloren gehen, können Sie gegen eine Gebühr von 10,00 Euro eine neue Chipkarte des Schülertickets bei dem Verkehrsunternehmen erhalten, bei dem Sie das Abo abgeschlossen haben.
