401.6 Transporting of Students by Employees

Code No. 401.6


Generally, transportation of students is 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. Employees who transport students for school purposes must have the permission of the principal, the activities director, or the superintendent. 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. Employees who transport students in the employees’ personal vehicle must have a current copy of their vehicle insurance in the vehicle and a valid driver’s license on their person.
