AN ACT to amend the education law, in relation to transportation


  Section  1. Paragraph e of subdivision 1 of section 3635 of the educa-
tion law, as amended by chapter 665 of the laws of 1990, is  amended  to
read as follows:
  e.  In  lieu  of the transportation provided pursuant to the foregoing
provisions of this  subdivision,  a  board  of  education  may,  at  its
discretion, provide transportation to any child attending grades kinder-
garten  through  eight between the school such child legally attends and
before-and/or-after-school child care locations.  For  the  purposes  of
this subdivision, a before-and/or-after-school child care location shall
mean  a  place,  other  than  the child's home, where care for less than
twenty-four hours a day is provided on a regular basis [for a child  who
attends  school within the school district], provided that such place is
situated within the school district. This definition  includes,  but  is
not  limited  to,  a  variety  of  child  care services such as day care
centers, family day care homes and in-home care by  non-relatives.  Such
transportation  may be provided for children attending grades kindergar-
ten through eight where the distance between  the  school  they  legally
attend  and before-and/or-after-school child care locations is more than
two miles, and may be provided for up to a distance  of  fifteen  miles,
the  distance in each case being measured by the nearest available route
from before-and/or-after-school child care locations to the school  they
legally  attend,  except  that transportation for a lesser distance than
two miles or a greater distance than fifteen miles may  be  provided  if
transportation  for  such distances is provided to students between home
and school. Where a child receives transportation from  a  before-school
child  care location to the school he or she legally attends, such child
