A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to requiring the department of education to report on procedures following receipt of a notice of misconduct about an employee of a school bus vendor

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Section 21-997 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as added by a local law for the year 2019 amending the administrative code of the city of New York in relation to the creation and distribution of a school bus ridership guide, as proposed in introduction number 451-B, is amended by adding a new paragraph 5 to subdivision a to read as follows:

5. The procedure followed by the department when it receives notice of misconduct about an employee of a school bus vendor, including but not limited to, how authorized parents and guardians can file a complaint to the department relating to such employee, the steps taken by the department to investigate such notice and the average time frame associated with each such step, what outcomes may result from a substantiated complaint, and any opportunities for an employee of a school bus vendor to appeal.

6. The procedure followed by the department for general education school bus routes and special education school bus routes in the event of an inclement weather emergency.

§ 2. This local law takes effect on the same date as a local law amending the administrative code of the city of New York, relating to the creation and distribution of a school bus ridership guide, as proposed in introduction number 451-B for the year 2018, takes effect.
