3327.07 [Effective 7/1/2014] Fee for transportation charged by chartered nonpublic schools.

(A) The governing authority of a chartered nonpublic school that transports a student enrolled in the school to and from school may charge the parent or guardian of the student a fee for the transportation, if the governing authority purchased the vehicle that transports the student using no state or federal funds. The fee shall not exceed the per student cost of the transportation, as determined by the governing authority.

(B) The parent or guardian of a student who is enrolled in a chartered nonpublic school and is eligible for transportation by a school district under section 3327.01 of the Revised Code may decline that transportation and accept transportation from the chartered nonpublic school. The governing authority of a chartered nonpublic school may charge a fee under division (A) of this section regardless of whether a student is eligible for transportation under section 3327.01 of the Revised Code.

(C) The offering by the governing authority of a chartered nonpublic school of transportation to and from the school does not relieve any school district board of education from any duty imposed by sections 3327.01 and 3327.02 of the Revised Code with respect to the chartered nonpublic school's students.
