How may a district fulfill its obligation to transport its resident students who attend accredited nonpublic schools?

Answer: 

When a district provides transportation to a nonpublic student (whether by statutory mandate or by choice), it may do so with its own school buses, by contracting with a private carrier, by providing parental reimbursement, or by contracting with a contiguous district to provide the transportation either all the way from the student's residence or from the boundary line of the resident district. Iowa Code -- 285.1(17).
