BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The Palm Beach County School Board on Wednesday is expected to approve between $2.3M and $5M in additional funds to transport special needs children in district.
From a proposal reviewed by BocaNewsNow.com:
“This Bid is used primarily for our medically fragile student population and includes the cost of nurses that travel with these students. Services also include transport of our McKinney-Vento, Foster Care, and ESE students when a school bus route is not available.
Private transportation is only used when the Transportation Department cannot meet the students’ needs through yellow school bus or Palm Tran/Tri Rail transportation services.
The additional funds requested will be used due to an increase in ridership due to current driver shortages, an increase in McKinney Vento students, and an increase in cases that could not be supported by yellow bus transportation i.e. ESE program distribution, fragile students and those with delicate behavioral needs.”
The services are provided by ALC Schools LLC and Med Aide Services, Inc.
