Generally, transportation of students shall be in a motor vehicle owned by the school district and driven by an employee. In some cases, it may be more economical or efficient for the school district to allow an employee of the school district to transport the students in the employee’s motor vehicle or in a school district motor vehicle other than a school bus.
Employees who transport students for school purposes must have the permission of the superintendent or the superintendent’s designee and must further provide to the superintendent or the superintendent’s designee, for copying, a current driver’s license and proof of insurance.
This policy statement applies to transportation of students for school purposes in addition to the regular bus route transporting students to and from their designated attendance center.
