Instructions for Summer
Transportation Contracts (Form TCS)
contracts must be awarded for each of the three different types
of summer programs: programs for students with disabilities under
Section 4408 of the Education Law; district-operated programs
for students without disabilities; and BOCES-operated programs
for students without disabilities.
- If your district has already awarded
a contract which includes more than one of the above programs,
you must send us a copy of that contract, on which you must note
the total anticipated cost for each program separately.
- The cost of transportation to a
BOCES-operated summer program for students without disabilities
is not aidable. The cost for a district-operated program is aidable.
- The cost of summer transportation
for students with disabilities is aided through the STAC system.
Such contract costs should be accounted for in the Special Aid
- A regular school year contract
may not include transportation provided during July and August.
Separate contracts are required for summer transportation.
