BILL NUMBER:S5227

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to the
transportation of students in the Rochester city school district

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Notwithstanding any other rule or regulation
to the contrary, and specifically 8 NRCRR 156.2 (a), the Rochester
city school district may provide transportation to any pupil who lives
more than one-half mile from the school. Such routes shall not he
included within the calculation of state aid for transportation
purposes.

JUSTIFICATION: Currently, pupils who live within 1.5 miles from
school have to walk. This poses serious safety concerns to these
children. This hill would authorize the Rochester City School District
to provide transportation to all pupils who live more than .5 mile
from the school without additional cost to the state.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to state.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
