Transportation Rate Increase History
The last transportation rate increase was in May 2006 when the one way rate increased from $5 to $6 and the round trip rate increased from $7.50 to $9.00.
In June 2012 the Board voted as follows:
Subject to a supplemental budget appropriation the Board approves an increased transportation provider reimbursement rate of $16.51 for round trip transportation and $11.11 for one-way transportation for all infants, toddlers, and preschool age children with the requirement that, if the recommended reimbursement rate increase is funded, entities that receive transportation payment from EEC for infants, toddlers, and preschool age children must dedicate one adult monitor on all vehicles. The transportation rate of $9.00 per day round trip and $6.00 per day for one way transportation will remain in effect for all transportation providers that transport school age children.
November 2012: FY14 Aspirational Budget
The Board votes to recommend to the Governor a funding request of $17,586,713 for the FY14 Aspirational Budget to increase the rate paid for transportation to support improvements in the system and the addition of one adult monitor on all vehicles carrying infants, toddlers, and preschool children. The request includes an increase in the add-on rate from $17.22 to $24.73 for infants, toddler, and preschool children. Transportation for school age children would remain at $17.22.
November 2013: FY15 Aspirational Budget
The Board votes (again) to recommend to the Governor a funding request of $17,586,713 for the FY15 Aspirational Budget to increase the rate paid for transportation to support improvements in the system and the addition of one adult monitor on all vehicles carrying infants, toddlers, and preschool children.
What does the Rate of $16.51 for Round Trip Transportation Provide?
An increase in the transportation rate would support the following expenses at roughly the percentages shown.
TRANSPORTATION: Current Estimated Cost $18,034,933
The FY13 average daily cost for Income Eligible and DTA is 90% to 95% of the round trip transportation rate of $9.00.
These percentages were applied to the proposed round trip rate of $16.51 to calculate the cost estimate for comparison purposes.
The estimates for School Age children remains at the current rate of $9.00 for IE and DTA and included in the add on rate for school age children.
The estimated increase in cost could fluctuate due to changes in caseload and children eligible for transportation.
The following represent the areas of transportation review, EEC unit responsibility, and if the SAO audit has noted a concern.
