Colorado Repeals Foster-Care Student Transport Law

April 9, 2019

School Transportation News reports that Colorado “has officially repealed legislation passed last year that attempted to better facilitate the transportation of children placed in foster care between school districts.” Despite its initial approval, opponents claim that the law has “introduced unintended consequences.” Under ESSA, “transportation is guaranteed for students who are in the foster care system and who are moved outside of their original district.”
