the log as is necessary.
A separate form is to be completed for each vehicle (owned, leased or
contracted by the district) and for each route.
Complete this form for each route which transports pupils to school. Do not
complete this form for routes which transport pupils from school, or for mileage
traveled on recreational trips or educational trips made at any time during the
school year.
Starting Mileage

This may be at a
school or at the vehicle storage area.
Total Mileage

Pupil Count
The head count of pupils exiting the pupil transportation vehicle on the way to
school. If the vehicle has multiple stops, record the number of pupils exiting at each
of the stops. Stops may be school buildings or transfer points. Do not count pupils
on their way home from school.
