COVID has presented school districts and their transportation contractors with unique challenges and significant uncertainty. Most bus contracts that were in effect at the start of the pandemic did not adequately describe the parties’ rights and obligations under the circumstances. This presentation will discuss options for addressing such deficiencies, taking into account factors such as potential school closings, payment obligations, federal and state relief funds, etc. By negotiating modifications to their bus contracts, both school districts and their contractors can gain a better sense of certainty should COVID or other unanticipated circumstances present themselves in the future.

State support for public and private pupil transportation is normally viewed as coming from two sources Special Education (Fund 27) and categorical aid programs (Fund 10). In each case it is formula-based. This presentation will review the processes used to distribute the aid, respond to a few related questions and reflect on the impact of COVID-19 may generate for individual local education agencies (LEA).
