Generally, transportation of students must be in a motor vehicle owned by the District and driven by an employee. In some cases, it may be more economical or efficient for the District to allow a District employee to transport the students in the employee’s motor vehicle. Transportation of a student in a private motor vehicle must be done only with permission of the Superintendent, except in emergency situations when the health or well-being of the student or others is at risk.
Employees who transport students for school purposes must have the permission of the Superintendent and must further provide to the Superintendent, 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.
The District assumes no responsibility or liability for injury or accident caused by an employee who is transporting a student for other than school purposes.
