D.C. schools switching special needs transports
D.C. Public schools say they are switching to smaller vehicles to transport special needs students in an effort to save money on gas usage.
They say the current fleet transports only a small percentage of what it can accommodate.
The court appointed David Gilmore, Special Master, to oversee the transportation program says there is no data to show that the smaller vehicles meet federal guidelines.
D.C. Schools say other cities use them and they have not heard complaints.
