Contract
Purchase of Service Agreement for the
Transportation
of
Children and Youth
in
Foster Care
Placement
Objective
This
agreement
is
a
requirement
of the
Every Child Succeeds
Act
of
2015 which
requires
counties
and schools
to
work together to ensure that children
in foster
care
can
remain
in
the
same school they attended
prior
to
placement
unless
it is determined that
it is not
in the child's
best
interest. This
agreement
lays out a
plan
for addressing transportation
of children
in
foster
care and transportation costs
will
be split equally by
the school and the
county.
Aitkin County
Health and Human can receive some
lV-E
reimbursement
for money spent
on transportation
costs.
Opportunity
This
agreement will ensure that
Aitkin
County
Health
and
Human Services and
McGregor
Schools are
coordinating transportation
for
children
in foster care that attend
the
McGregor
School District.
Existing or New Contract

Changes to Existing Contract

an
equal
opportunity
provider."
