That: Whereas some Cambridge Public Schools (CPS) students with disabilities are transported to and from CPS schools via a different bus company from the company that transports the majority of CPS students, with a separate contract specifying service details; and

Whereas students with disabilities have some unique needs, such as related to the training that drivers are required to have, the importance of continuity of services and personnel, and parent-driver and parent-CPS communication about transportation issues; and

Whereas parents of students with disabilities have little opportunity to talk with the School Committee about transportation issues; The School Committee directs the Building and Grounds Sub-Committee to hold a Sub-Committee meeting for the purpose of discussing transportation of students with disabilities attending Cambridge Public Schools, with ample notice to parents of students with disabilities. This Sub-Committee meeting will be held no later than May 1, 2019.
