                 CHARTER OR PRIVATE SCHOOL BUS COMPANIES

School bus drivers must meet more rigorous standards than those required of charter bus
drivers. Therefore, charter bus drivers who are not properly credentialed (see item A
below) must not be used for transporting students on school-related activities. State law
and Board Rule 2381 require all drivers of buses on school-related activities (including
Youth Services and student body trips) to meet certain criteria.

If schools choose to make transportation arrangements with private bus companies or
school bus contractors directly, the contracting/chartering school must make sure the
following criteria are met:

     A. The driver must posses either a valid California Special Driver Certificate to
        operate a school bus, a SPAB (Security Policy Advisory Board) certificate and a Medical
        Certificate (valid for two years from date of issue)*
     B. The bus must have a vehicle inspection approval certificate for a school bus or a
        SPAB (Form 292).
     C. The bus company must carry a least $5,000,000 liability insurance.
     D. The bus company must be able to provide written assurance that the bus driver is
        able to comply with the legal maximum of 10 hours drive time/16 hours on duty
        for all employers.

*Prior to beginning the trip, the school administrator must verify that the driver of the bus
has valid credential in his/her possession.
