We are trying to reevaluate our cost per mile for field trips. I was wondering what your district charges for it

Josh,

I hope this helps you this is our cost for the 2011-2012 school year:

Leon County rates for schools or district departments are:

1. $18.00 per hour for each driver (the drivers hours includes the travel to and from the compound);
2. $10.00 per hour for each bus driver assistant required to assist on a wheelchair bus;
3. $2.75 per mile for the bus from compound to compound parking;
4. There is a minimum of two hours charge for a one-way trip;
5. There is a minimum of four hours charge for a drop-off and pick-up shuttle trip;
6. The school will reimburse a driver for meals for any trip traveling out-of-county 50 miles or more one-way;
7. The school is responsible for paying tolls, parking for the buses, and room reservations for the drivers.

3070N is my bus number and the N stands for Compressed Natural Gas.....

The $18 an hour figure probably includes payroll taxes, and I would agree that it's pretty low. For an hourly wage paid to an employee of $15, the employer could be paying as much as $25-30 when you include social security, medicare, & unemployment taxes, and benefits. (Yes, not all of these apply to public school districts, but you get the idea.)
