Who Qualifies for Transportation
For students identified for special education services, the Individualized Education Program (IEP) team will determine if the student requires transportation.
How the Process Works
Transportation Services must receive complete, accurate information regarding the student’s needs to ensure safe transportation service. The Transportation 1066 Form is required before transportation service begins. The request for transportation is submitted by the student’s Special Education Teacher to the Student Equity and Opportunity Office. Once processed, the form is then submitted to Transportation Services.
In accordance with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) all personal information regarding students is strictly confidential. Pertinent health care information (including Behavior Intervention Plan) must be provided to Transportation staff for safe transport.
Once the Transportation 1066 Form is received, the routing department will determine the mode of transportation. If the student is not routed on a yellow bus, the student will be placed on the third-party vendor American Logistics Company Schools (ALC). Transportation is provided for the student with an IEP as a related service. Family members (incl. siblings) of transportation-eligible students serviced by ALC may not ride along under any circumstances, unless previously approved. Non-eligible siblings can submit a request for transportation via the Exception Request Process.
Once a need for transportation is established and the request is approved, it will take up to 10 business days for Transportation Services to make the necessary arrangements for the appropriate mode of transportation.
