8660 - INCIDENTAL TRANSPORTATION OF STUDENTS BY PRIVATE VEHICLE
The Board of Education authorizes the incidental transportation by private vehicle of students of the District. This includes occasional transportation for field trips, outings, and the like. Routine transportation, however, shall be subject to all requirements listed in AC 3301-83-19, Board Policy 8650, and relevant administrative guidelines.
This policy does not apply to parents who privately arrange transportation for their own children. No District staff shall organize such arrangements or assist parents in doing so.
Any such incidental transportation must be approved in advance and in writing by the Principal in accordance with the Superintendent's administrative guidelines.
The parent of the participating student will be given, upon request, the name of the driver, the owner of the vehicle, and the description of the vehicle. The District will maintain on file the amount of liability insurance on the vehicle and the name of the insurance company.
No person shall be approved for the incidental transportation of students in a private vehicle who is not an employee of this Board; an approved volunteer; the parent of a student enrolled in this District; and the holder of a currently-valid license to operate a motor vehicle in the State of Ohio.
No person shall be permitted to transport students if s/he does not possess and maintain automobile liability and personal injury insurance in the amount required by District administrative guidelines.
Any private vehicle used for the incidental transportation of students must be owned by the approved driver or the spouse of the approved driver and must conform to registration requirements of the State.
The responsibility of professional staff members for the discipline and control of students will extend to their incidental transportation of students in a private vehicle. Drivers who are not professional staff members are requested to report student misconduct to the principal.
