09-23-2008 Special School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #31


Title
Change Board Policy 8660 Transportation by Private Vehicle

Discussion

Justification:

The current policy is not in line with Florida State Statute 1006.22.  The proposed changes will more closely align existing transportation practices with Florida State Statute.

Summary of Proposed Policy:

The policy in effect removes the requirement that all drivers that drive students in a privately owned vehicle (POV) must be an adult; that the transportation arrangement in a POV must be approved in writing by the students parent and in advance of the event; allows POV's to be used in the event of an emergency; and allows the district to contract with commercial transportation carriers for athletic trips and educational outings. These changes will better align existing transportation practices with Florida State Statute 1006.22 and provide clearer direction to staff in their planning for off campus activities.



Recommendation
To revise School Board Policy 8660 Transportation by Private Vehicle.
