Coordination Is Key: Transporting Special-Needs Students
Lawrence, Peter
School Business Affairs, v79 n2 p16-18 Feb 2013
Transporting students with special needs can be a costly proposition. However, school business officials can help mitigate those costs by focusing on four specific areas: relationships, information sharing, safety, and time lines. Although these areas may seem a bit far removed from the numbers we love to crunch, they do affect your district's bottom line and can have a positive effect on your student transportation system. This article describes how each of these four areas are critical to helping mitigate costs for transporting students with special needs. The suggestions provided herein should be considered as low-hanging fruit for districts to grab in these tough fiscal times. The effort spent in having these conversations has the potential to pay back a district for many years with improved service and cost savings.
