A special education student may be entitled to transportation when transportation is a related service required for that student to benefit from the educational program. Those students most likely to be eligible are students with visual impairment, orthopedic impairment, or severe handicapping conditions, or if the IEP team places the student at a school other than the home school. Merely being in special education or not at the home school does not entitle students to transportation.
When a student is entitled to transportation and the parent provides transport, the District reimburses at a rate of $6 per day, confirmed by school attendance. For more information, call Special Services (471-1100, ext. 60432). Mileage forms can be found online here.
Please note: As of the 2019-2020 school year, New Haven will no longer transport students outside of the school district.
