Will a second round of school bus purchase approvals be available for 2012-13?
Typically, each year, for a variety of reasons, a few districts decide not to purchase school buses which were approved for state subsidy. If the state receives school bus cancellations from schools then the Maine DOE can approve a second round of bus purchase approvals.
Superintendents, business managers and transportation staff are reminded to submit one cancellation form for each approved school bus purchase that your district does not plan to purchase – for FY11/12 and FY12/13. Your swift attention to this important matter allows the state to redistribute school bus subsidy to schools in need.
The school bus cancellation form (EFT-20A) can be found at:
