Spring is here - it's field trip time!

Transportation is in your child's IEP, but the school says no “special needs bus is available.” The school is requiring parents to provide transportation.

Aide in the IEP, but the teacher tells you the “aide will be busy with other duties on the field trip.” If your child wants to go with the class, you must attend to assist.

New Article! Advocating for Field Trip Bus Transportation

When the school says you will have to transport if you want your child to go on the field trip with the others - what can you do?

Find out how to state your case, step-by-step.


Transportation for After School Activities

The IEP provides for out-of-district placement.

The school says they do not have to pay for bus transportation to after school activities. They refuse to amend the IEP to include transportation as a related service. Is this legal?


Can a Student Receive Special Transportation in a 504 Plan?

Question: Does the student "need" transportation to allow him equal access to education as Section 504 requires?

Student "need" is an individual determination made by the student’s 504 Team.
