Trips by School Vehicles

Besides taking students to and from school, school vehicles shall provide transportation for field trips and for special activities approved by the Governing Board. Such trips may be taken in buses or other school transportation vehicles owned, leased, or rented by the district. All vehicles shall meet federal and state standards.

The Superintendent shall maintain procedures to regulate the use of the vehicles for approved school-related activities. Activity trips occurring outside of school hours shall be subject to the rules and policies regulating educational field trips. Student councils, parent-teacher associations, and any other organizations requesting transportation shall be fully responsible for the costs of the trip. To the extent that funding has been approved by the Board, such costs may be charged to the district.

Out-of-county school bus trips may be approved for any school event that is scheduled during the school year. Any requests for out-of-county trips must have the approval of the Board.
