Transportation Fees   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

Because the cost of providing student transportation exceeds funding provided by the state, the Board of Education finds it necessary to charge fees for home-to-school student transportation.

When home-to-school student transportation is provided, the Superintendent or designee shall annually submit proposed transportation fee schedules for Board approval. Fees shall be determined on the basis of operating costs in accordance with law.

No charge shall be made for any transportation of students whose individualized education program requires transportation or whose parents/guardians are determined indigent pursuant to administrative regulations.
