Students transportable for school-sponsored trips or activities shall use District-owned vehicles whenever possible. However, privately-owned vehicles may be used for student transportation when, in the opinion of the superintendent or designee, this is the most practical or the only possible method of transportation, provided that the vehicle is safe, driven by a responsible adult, and covered by adequate accident and liability insurance.
The following minimum requirements shall be met:
School administrators and other personnel designated by the superintendent are granted standard authorization by the Board. Other employees, such as coaches, music teachers, and activity sponsors may, in exceptional cases, be granted special permission to transport students in private vehicles, subject to the requirements set forth above.
