If the DCYF determines that a student residing in out-of-home care outside the student's school of origin district is not receiving transportation services to the student's school of origin for a week or more, the DCYF must notify the school of origin district, the school district where the out-of-home care is located, and the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI).

If within two weeks of notification, the notified school districts do not provide the student with regular transportation services to the school of origin, the DCYF must notify the OSPI, which must then deduct $500 per day from the next transportation allocation of each notified school district until regular transportation is provided to the student.

These requirements do not apply if the DCYF determines that remaining enrolled in the school of origin is not in the best interest of the student.
