3:30 p.m. – 4:45 p.m. | Frisco 3 ¢No Yellow Bus? Now What? Exploring Alternative Transportation Options for Students with Special Needs Law & Policy Facilitator: Charlie Hood Presenters: Jeff Miles, Josh Rice & Cathy Staggs While we want the unparalleled safety record of the school bus to guide transportation services for all students, sometimes the yellow vehicle is not a feasible, cost-efficient option. Several other contracted options exist, more than ever before, but it’s vital that student transporters understand what is entailed when working with these companies. What about liability and insurance? Driver training and background checks? Vehicle safety, inspections and maintenance? Driver familiarity with the students and their individual needs? These are just some of the questions that school districts should be asking before selecting a nonyellow school bus service, whether it be paratransit, taxi cabs, “alternate” student transportation providers, or the new transportation network companies, also known as rideshare. Join a panel of student transportation experts as they discuss the homework that school districts must perform to


determine the safest and most cost-effective alternatives for transporting students from home to school, or to special services that are required by the individualized education program, that also comply with federal, state and local laws and regulations. How do you ensure that contracts with providers include sufficient safeguards that are monitored and enforced?
