Wisconsin Student Transportation Tab
PATH: Student Information > General > Transportation
The Student Transportation tab tracks the bus information and/or vehicle information of the student. Information entered on this tab is reported in the Pupil Transportation Extract.
Functionality for the Miles Transported field differs from other states. See the Miles Transportation section for more information.
For information on entering transportation data, see the Student Transportation tab.
The Pupil Transportation Extract calculates the total number of days as a range, either 90 days or less or 90 days or more, for each transportation record assigned to the student. The logic for this calculation follows:
Students can only be reported one time, regardless of how many transportation records they may have and how many schools in which they have enrollment records during the one school year.
- If a student has multiple transportation records with different Miles Transported values, the record that has the longest date range is reported. For example, if one transportation record falls in the 0-90 day range and another record falls in the Over 90 day range, the record will be reported in the Over 90 day range column.
- If a student has multiple transportation records with the same day duration range, the record that has the highest Miles Transported value will be reported. For example, if one record has a Miles Transported value of 2-5 miles and another record has a Miles Transported value of 0-2 miles and both fall within the 0-90 day duration range, the student will be reported in the 2-5 miles range.
- If a student has multiple transportation records with the same Mile Transported value, the Instructional Days are aggregated. For example, if one record has a Miles Transported of 8-12 miles that is 60 Instructional Days long and another record has Miles Transported of 8-12 that is 55 Instructional Days long, the student is reported in the EightTo12M_90DaysMore column.
Instructional days are calculated between the Transportation Start Date and End Date. If there is not an End Date, the end date of the last term of the calendar is used. Instructional days must fall within the enrollment and transportation record in order to be reported.
The following values can be assigned to the student:
0-2 miles (hazardous area)
More than zero miles but less than two miles
More than two miles but less than five miles
More than five miles but less than eight miles
More than eight miles but less than twelve miles
Over 12 miles
Twelve miles or more
