Pierson SUBJECT: Charter Schools Transportation Resource Guide, Revised June 2001 Transporting students safely and efficiently is a key component in the success of Florida’s charter schools and other public schools. During the last five years, the Department has assisted charter schools and school district sponsors in providing and arranging transportation services for charter school students that ensure safety and meet the requirements of law. Toward that end, we are pleased to provide the attached Charter Schools Transportation Resource Guide, Revised June 2001. The guide includes an overview of statutory safety requirements, information on charter schools’ options for providing and arranging transportation, tools for helping charter schools estimate transportation costs and reimbursement, and additional sources of information. We encourage persons in school districts, existing charter schools, prospective charter schools, and transportation companies to review this guide. Please let us know if you have questions, comments, or suggestions for future content. WVP:CFH cc: Charter Schools Contacts District Transportation Directors
