Special Education Transportation Services Policy

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

The purpose of this document is to establish a uniform system of standards and procedures for special education transportation services in the District of Columbia that is consistent with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requirement to provide a free, appropriate public education (FAPE) to all students with disabilities. This purpose is accomplished through:

  • Establishing state-level criteria that assist Individualized Education Program (IEP) Teams in making appropriate eligibility decisions.
  • Clarifying local education agency (LEA) responsibilities, and establishing documentation and procedural requirements that enable timely coordination between LEAs and OSSE’s Division of Student Transportation (OSSE DOT).
  • Establishing a bi-annual LEA certification requirement that enables OSSE DOT to prepare for the provision of extended school year (ESY) related transportation services during the summer months and special education transportation services at the start of each school year.
