Federal Relief for School Bus Driver Shortage

Did you know that federal funding could support transportation costs?
The federal Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief fund (ESSER) includes a provision for funds to be used in support of transportation costs related to sustaining school operations during the COVID pandemic.

According to guidance issued in November 2021 by the U.S. Education Department, the funds can be used to support: 
  • Salary increases and bonuses to help recruit or retain drivers
  • Costs of additional routes needed due to seating challenges resulting from social distancing
  • Costs for summer school transportation and after-school programs
  • Use of public transportation services
  • Reimbursement to parents for transporting their own children
  • Costs for extended day transportation to allow for remediation services for students

This January, Noelle Ellerson Ng, NAPT® Federal Advocacy Liaison and Associate Executive Director, Advocacy & Governance, AASA, The School Superintendents Association will sit down with NAPT® Executive Director, Mike Martin, and Tim Ammon, Co-Owner of Decision Support Group to uncover what this could mean for your district.

Tune in to hear how you can become an advocate for your district.
