School district vehicles may be available to local non-profit entities which promote cultural, educational, civic, community, or recreational activities for transporting to and from non-school sponsored activities within the state as long as the transportation does not interfere with or disrupt the education program of the school district and does not interfere with or delay the transportation of students.
The local non-profit entity must pay the actual cost of using the district vehicle as determined by the transportation manager. Prior to making the district vehicle available to the local non-profit entity, the school bus signs shall be covered and the flashing warning lamps and stop arm made inoperable.
It shall be the responsibility of the superintendent [or designee] to develop administrative regulations for use of district vehicles to transport students and others to school-sponsored events within the state and application for, use of, and payment for use of district vehicles by local non-profit entities for non-school sponsored activities.
