Impractical (payment in lieu of)

In accordance with RC 3327.02, the board of education of a city, exempted village, or local school district may determine that it is impractical to transport a pupil who is eligible for transportation to and from a school under section 3327.01 of the Revised Code.

Students K through 12 who live in the Mentor Public Schools district and do not have transportation provided by us may be eligible for transportation reimbursement.

Notification in writing in the form of one Reimbursement Request form along with two completed copies of the Contract form must be received no later than October 15th. Requests received after the deadline will NOT be accepted. The State only gives the District funds for reimbursements based on the number of requests we have received and submitted by their deadline for the current school year.

It is also the responsibility of the parent/guardian to notify us of any changes in home address or school of attendance.

Near the end of the school year we will send out to the home Application for Reimbursement forms for each child we have on record to verify attendance.
Payments will be sent out Beginning to Mid July each year for those forms that were returned on time.
