MDUSD Transportation Update

At our September 4, 2012 CAC meeting, Carolyn Patton, Special EducationAdministrator, provided us with an update on Special Education Transportation.  As promised, attached is the powerpoint presentation and the new Specialized Transportation Needs Assessment form which is being used to determine eligibility.  As discussed at the meeting, the district is exploring the possibility of clustering but it has NOT yet been approved by the board of education.  They are currently collecting data to see how many students would be affected and what would be the cost savings to implement clustering in our district.  Parents input meetings have been postponed until the district decides if they will be considering a clustering model of providing transportation.  I will keep you updated as we receive more information.
