For each student placed in a residential setting by the student's admission, review, and dismissal (ARD) committee, including those students placed in the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired and the Texas School for the Deaf, the resident school district shall be responsible for transportation at the beginning and end of the term and for regularly scheduled school holidays when students are expected to leave the residential campus. The resident school district is not responsible for transportation costs for students placed in residential settings by their parents. Transportation costs shall not exceed state approved per diem and mileage rates unless excess costs can be justified and documented. Transportation shall be arranged using the most cost efficient means. When it is necessary for the safety of the student, as determined by the ARD committee, for an adult designated by the ARD committee to accompany the student, round-trip transportation for that adult shall also be provided. The resident school district and the residential facility shall coordinate to ensure that students are transported safely, including the periods of departure and arrival.
