Transportation for Students With Special Needs
Our goal in Academy School District 20 is to provide safe, dependable, and efficient transportation to and from school, enhancing the positive learning environment for each student on a daily basis. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires that transportation be provided as a related service in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE). Transportation will be provided using the student's Individual Education Plan (IEP) as a guideline. We believe all students can behave appropriately and safely while riding on a school bus.
Academy School District 20 bus drivers and paraprofessionals receive training that exceeds state requirements outlined by the Colorado Department of Education.
