ODE Reclaimed Millions in Transportation Funding from Schools Last Year
This happened due to non-compliance with the state's pupil transportation provision

The school district has had issues with its transportation system for years and recently pointed to supply chain issues and a lack of drivers to explain frequent delays. Now, a state law included in HB 110 that went into effect in 2021 appears to have added another hurdle.
CPS is not alone. Other large districts in the state have also lost millions due to penalties stemming from transportation complaints investigated by the state.
