What are the obligations of a school district to transport its resident students who attend an accredited nonpublic school?

Answer: 

Students who attend an accredited nonpublic school are entitled to transportation by the district in which they reside on the same basis as resident students who are enrolled in the district "when the general assembly appropriates funds to the department of education for the payment of claims for transportation costs submitted by the school district." Iowa Code -- 285.2.
