3250 BP - Transportation Fees

Business and Noninstructional Operations
Board Policy No. 3250
Policy Adopted:  December 13, 2007

TRANSPORTATION FEES

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

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 require transportation or whose parents/guardians are determined indigent pursuant to administrative regulations.
