    Appeals will be handled as outlined below. The process provides parents and/or students with an opportunity to present all concerns regarding a denied request for transportation. Because the granting of transportation rests with several District offices, the process is an opportunity to assure that transportation decisions are made on the basis of all relevant information, and in accordance with applicable District regulations.

    Procedure

    The Transportation Manager will review and approve all Transportation staff assessments to deny a transportation request. The Transportation Manager will provide the parent/guardian with a written decision and notification of the parent/guardian’s right to further appeal. A student’s parent/guardian may further appeal the denied transportation requests by filing a written request for review to the District’s Director of Logistics. The Director of Logistics will review the information provided by the parent/guardian and may also interview District staff and/or review District records for information pertinent to making his/her determination.  Within five (5) school business days of receiving the request for review, the Director of Logistics will provide the parent/guardian with a written decision and notification of the parent/guardian’s right to further appeal to the Assistant Superintendent of Operations, whose decision is final.

    All appeals must be in writing and submitted through transdept@seattleschools.org.
