BILL NUMBER:S2460

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to
authorizing and directing the commissioner to develop guidelines for
transportation of students on field trips

PURPOSE: To allow the commissioner to authorize and direct the
development of guidelines for the transportation of pupils attending
school in the boroughs of the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and
Staten Island while on field trips.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Amend Section 1. Section 305 of the
education law by adding a new subdivision 43 to allow the commissioner
to authorize and direct the development of guidelines for the
transportation of pupils attending school in the boroughs of the
Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island to the location
of field trips during and outside of school hours on school buses
owned or leased by school districts located in such boroughs,
Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary, such transportation
shall be provided to locations within twenty miles outside of the
boundaries of the said boroughs and to any location within the city.

JUSTIFICATION: This bill would allow for schools to take pupils on
field trips outside of the City of New York to locations within twenty
miles outside of the boundaries of the city and to any location within
the five boroughs. Taking into consideration the area and size of New
York City, this bill would give greater freedom to schools with regard
to the transportation of pupils on field trips in and outside of the
city.
