The 16th edition of National School Transportation Specifications and Procedures is now being shipped to those who have ordered it, officials for the National Congress on School Transportation (NCST) announced on Monday.
The printed publication can be ordered for $55 per copy, including shipping, through the National Association of State Directors of Pupil Transportation Services via this link.
The NCST interim steering committee said that the final National School Transportation Specifications and Procedures document with changes incorporated will also be published in electronic format as a PDF.
The 16th edition of the document incorporates updates that were adopted by state delegates at the 2015 NCST in Des Moines, Iowa.
According to the steering committee, the new publication also includes updated formatting, graphics, and active links in the electronic version’s table of contents “to create a relevant and user-friendly document” that will “provide the industry with a progressive tool for daily use.”
The project was an extensive undertaking by the writing committee, the editing committee, professional staff, and consultants as well as the steering committee.
