OHIO'S SYSTEM OF REGIONAL COORDINATORS FOR PUPIL TRANSPORTATION.
PARSONS, JOHN M.
PRIOR TO 1965, A SCHOOL DISTRICT IN THE STATE OF OHIO WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE TRANSPORTATION OF THOSE PUBLIC ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PUPILS LIVING WITHIN ITS OWN BOUNDARIES. NEW LEGISLATION THAT YEAR LEGALIZED THE SPENDING OF TAX MONIES FOR TRANSPORTING PUPILS ATTENDING NONPUBLIC SCHOOLS, AND SERVED AS A MANDATE FOR ALL SCHOOL DISTRICTS, REQUIRING THE TRANSPORTATION OF ALL ELEMENTARY PUPILS TO THE SCHOOL OF THEIR CHOICE. AS A RESULT OF THIS LEGISLATION, NEW PROBLEMS AROSE, INCLUDING BUS SCHEDULING WITHOUT OVERLAP, SCHOOL CALENDAR UNIFORMITY, DAILY TIME SCHEDULES IN SCHOOL, AND OTHER LESS PRESSING ITEMS. IN ORDER TO SOLVE THESE PROBLEMS, ANOTHER LEGISLATIVE ACT WAS PASSED REQUIRING THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION TO ESTABLISH A SERIES OF REGIONAL SCHOOL TRANSPORTATION OFFICES, RESULTING IN THE ESTABLISHMENT OF 30 STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION REGIONAL OFFICES FOR THE PURPOSE OF COORDINATING THE TOTAL SCHOOL TRANSPORTATION OPERATION. THIS ARTICLE APPEARS IN THE "JOURNAL ON STATE SCHOOL SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT," VOL. 1, NO. 2, SUMMER 1967, PP. 104-116. (ES)
