Special ed transportation: addendum
My posting earlier this week on the Petties case missed the mark in a couple of respects. Plaintiffs attorney Steven Ney said that the District will exit only part of the matter on Oct. 1 -- pending successful operation of the bus system by the Office of the State Superintendent of Education and full funding of the bus system in the fiscal year 2011. Two other elements will remain in place. One is a series of underlying court orders regarding transportation standards--travel times, for example--that will continue until they are dismissed by U.S. District Judge Paul L. Friedman. The second involves timely payments by the District to private schools, the original impetus for Petties, Ney said. That stays in place under the auspices of Judge Friedman and Special Master Elise Baach.
