The Ottawa Student Transportation Authority is seeking input from the school community regarding a proposed policy and procedure to deliver transportation services to students in a joint custody arrangement and having two homes. Both homes must be within the attendance boundary and eligible for transportation. A formal application process requires that both parents and/or guardians sign the application and provide a schedule. Weekly or bi-weekly access schedules may be limited to ensure student safety. Other safety and operational risks will be assessed prior to approval or denial of each application.
Members of the school community are invited to complete an online survey (see link below). Please review the proposed policy and procedure, as well as Frequently Asked Questions on OSTA's website (www.ottawaschoolbus.ca) prior to completing the survey. Public consultation closes March 13th 2015.
OSTA thanks you for your input.
