Statutory Authority 22-51-108 and 42-4-1904, C.R.S.
Description of Subjects/Issues Pursuant to Sections 22-51-108 and 42-4-1904, C.R.S., the State Board of Education has the authority to promulgate rules related to school transportation including reasonable and adequate standards of safety in the maintenance and operations of buses and pupil transportation that promote the welfare of the students and afford reasonable protection to the public. This notice of rulemaking is a follow-up to the emergency rules the board adopted on May 10, 2017. The rulemaking is to adopt the emergency rules on a permanent basis. The emergency rulemaking was necessary following Senate Bill 17-083 which removed several rules in 1 CCR 301-26 due to technical issues identified during the rule review conducted by the Committee on Legal Services. In addition to the changes included in the emergency rulemaking, the department recommends additional changes to clarify various items within the rules.
Purpose/Objective of Rule Colorado law provides for the State Board of Education to adopt and enforce regulations governing the safe operation of school buses used for the transportation of students pursuant to Sections 22-51-108 and 42-4-1904, C.R.S. The purpose of these rules is to adopt and enforce regulations governing the reasonable and adequate standards of safety for the operation, maintenance and inspection of school transportation vehicles that promote the welfare of the students and afford reasonable protection to the public. These rules are designed to align with federal standards, reflect current industry practices, and incorporate recommendations from school district and service provider transportation professionals. The Commissioner, or designee, may provide an exemption to the Rules for the Operation, Maintenance and Inspection of School Transportation Vehicles to the extent the Commissioner finds an exemption to be appropriate. These rules shall become effective January 1, 2018 for all student transportation.
