School Bus Use by Community: EEADA
Updated

The general philosophy of the Superintendent is that transportation equipment purchased by the school district is to be used primarily for school purposes and that taxpayers shall not be expected to subsidize busing equipment or personnel not necessary for school district purposes. Nevertheless, it is the policy of the Superintendent to make available for use by appropriate community groups school transportation equipment to the extent that such use does not impinge upon or impair use for school district purposes.

Among community groups that qualify for the use of school transportation equipment are those composed of citizens 65 years of age and older. Such groups shall be given special consideration, as is required by the statute relating to community use of school buses. As permitted by law, all groups shall be expected to pay the actual costs involved in the use of school transportation equipment.

Non-school use of school transportation equipment shall not be intermingled with student transportation, nor shall it interfere with:

  1. Student transportation to, from or between schools cccc
  2. Student transportation for school activities and functions
  3. Emergency transportation for students
  4. Time required for maintenance and service of equipment
  5. Provision of standby equipment for school purposes

Regulations and procedures for community use of school transportation equipment shall be developed by the administration and approved by the Board.
