How is the pro rata cost calculated?

Answer: 

There is a statutory formula based on the actual cost for all children transported in all school buses, including 1/7 of the original net cost of the bus. See Iowa Code -- 285.1(12) for the full formula. The actual cost varies from district to district; each district's cost is available at this agency's web site (Annual Transportation Data document).
