TRUCKING 

It is the policy of the Board of School Trustees (the “Board”) to contract for trucking services whereby independent owner-operators drive their own vehicles to deliver school materials.  The Board authorizes the senior management to negotiate contracts for trucking services on an annual basis with the driver-owners, such contracts to incorporate the conditions applicable to "dependent contractors" as required by the Board's agreement with the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 407 (Outside Workers) union. 

SCHOOL BUSES 

It is the policy of the Board to contract for transportation of certain students in accordance with the School Act and the Regulation.  The Board authorizes the senior management to negotiate contracts to provide for transportation of students for school-related purposes and to consider for such contracts only those bus companies that have been approved for licensing by the B.C. Motor Vehicle Branch.
