LAFAYETTE, Colo. — A new book by attorney and consultant Peggy Burns and industry reporter Lisa Hudson provides insight on important legal disputes in special-needs transportation.

Education Compliance Group’s Defensible Decisions about Transporting Students with Special Needs: Lessons Learned from Legal Disputes will begin shipping Aug. 27. It’s available for purchase at a 20-percent pre-publication discount until Aug. 20.

The book has more than 300 pages, 16 topics and sections including In Practice, Overview, Case Summaries and Case Details. It’s intended to inform school district transportation professionals, bus contractors, special educators, and school and district administrators.

“This ‘look back’ at the important cases that will define ‘the road ahead’ for transporting students with special needs supports excellent decision-making, implementation of successful practices and effective training programs,” Burns said. “Readers will understand the ways in which safety, compliance and customer service come together to provide access to education for our special riders.”
