17:3381 Transportation for college students; transportation for other students subject to restrictions; authority to establish and collect bus transportation fees
A. A city, parish, or other local public school board may enter into contracts with individuals, partnerships, or corporations domiciled in this state to furnish transportation to students attending any institution under the supervision and management of the Board of Supervisors for the University of Louisiana System, the Board of Supervisors of Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College, the Board of Supervisors of Community and Technical Colleges, or the Board of Supervisors of Southern University and Agricultural and Mechanical College, or may furnish such transportation themselves, and pay for the same in the manner provided for defraying other expenses. Students receiving transportation may be charged a bus transportation fee in an amount not to exceed the actual cost of providing the transportation service. A school board shall establish such fees and shall provide for their collection.
B. A city or parish school board may adopt rules and regulations in accordance with this Section under which students other than qualified college students, such as exceptional or vocational-technical students, may be transported. However, the provision of transportation to such other students shall not result in the denial of transportation to an otherwise qualified college student nor result in the increase of the direct cost of buses and salaries and expenses of bus operators incurred by the school board in providing such transportation. Students receiving transportation may be charged a bus transportation fee in an amount sufficient to completely offset the actual cost of providing the transportation service. A school board shall establish such fees and shall provide for their collection.
