Transportation for Students in Joint Custody Arrangement with Two Homes – Renewals and New Applications
OSTA’s Policy and Procedures for Students in a Joint Custody Arrangement with Two Homes have been attached for your information. There are deadlines parents must meet in order to ensure transportation arrangements are made to two homes for the first school day in September.
1) NEW applications and schedules for transportation to two homes must be signed by BOTH parents (or individual and identical applications and schedules may be signed by each parent) and submitted to OSTA no later than June 1, 2016, if a student has not yet received transportation to two homes.
2) Parents of students who have already been receiving transportation to two homes on a previously approved application and schedule must RENEW their schedules with OSTA before June 30, 2016. Approval from both parents is not necessary, providing the access schedule or pickup/drop-off addresses have not changed from the current year.
3) If there are any changes to schedule or pickup/drop-off addresses from current year, a NEW application and schedule must be signed by BOTH parents and submitted to OSTA no later than June 1, 2016.
