Pierson SUBJECT: October 2001-2002 Transportation Survey The 2001-2002 Student Transportation October survey will be conducted the week of October 8-12, 2001. Student Transportation survey reporting requirements for 2001- 2002 remain the same as last year. The Automated Student Transportation Survey Information System at Northwest Regional Data Center must be used by all districts to transmit their student transportation information. The attached (pdf) 2001-2002 Student Transportation General Instructions provide information concerning student eligibility, reporting criteria, and instructions for online data entry. The deadline for transmitting October survey data is November 9, 2001. The attached form letter, which certifies the adjusted membership and the number of buses reported on the data base, is due to this office by November 15, 2001. The information in this letter is compared with the Department's reports to ensure that correct information is used in the transportation funding formula. The online data entry system will close for approximately three weeks following the transmission deadline for each survey so that our staff may analyze and incorporate this information into the transportation calculation. After this period, the online data entry system will re-open and amendments may be entered. Please contact this office if assistance is needed.
