Are there special rules for transportation of a student with a disability?

Answer: 

Generally, transportation of students with disabilities is provided as for other students. However, if the IEP (Individualized Education Plan) for a child with a disability includes transportation as a special education service, such transportation shall be provided at no cost to the parent/guardian of the child. Iowa Code -- 256B.2(2); 281 Iowa Administrative Code 41.98.
