Private Vehicle Transportation
The board issues the following statements regarding the use of private vehicles relative to transporting students:
- To ensure the protection of staff and students, staff members should not transport students by private vehicle. Transportation of students in district vehicles shall occur in accordance with Policy/Procedure 6630. In the event of a situational emergency, the staff member will follow the written procedures developed under the direction of the superintendent.
- Under unusual circumstances, the district may approve parents (or a designated parent-approved, responsible adult) driving their children to and from school in their own vehicle on a per-mile cost reimbursable basis. The superintendent or designee determines when “in-lieu” transportation would be advantageous to the district and coordinates implementation.
