Ohio Bill Would Penalize School Districts That Fail To Transport Private School Students

WOSU |

Ohio’s public schools are paid by the state to transport students who attend private, charter or community schools. But during the pandemic, some public school districts are not even transporting their own students. 

In that case, do those public schools still have to transport private school students? A new bill in the Ohio legislature would address that issue.

State Sen. Andrew Brenner (R-Delaware) says public school districts get state money to transport students to private, charter or community schools, so they need to continue to provide the service.
