The non-public reimbursement claim forms have been sent home with students today.
The non-public transportation reimbursement claim is the way by which parents of children attending a non-public school, or school districts, may get reimbursed for at least a part of their transportation costs. The funding for this program is appropriated by the legislature from the State of Iowa’s general fund. The program is mandated by Iowa Code section 285.1(14), which states: “Resident pupil attending a nonpublic school located either within or without the school district of the pupil’s residence shall be entitled to transportation on the same basis as provided for resident public school pupils under this section.”
Some important highlights to note:
- Please include all students in your household on one application. K-8 students only; preschool students are not eligible.
- A parent or guardian who transports one or more family members more than four miles to their nonpublic school are eligible to submit an application.
- Per the state of Iowa guidelines, forms will not be accepted by the resident school district past the December 1st deadline.
- Applications must be submitted to Trinity School Office no later than Wednesday, November 18, 2020.
