    Patchogue, New York 11772


    In all but the most unusual situations, secondary students are prohibited from using personal automobiles to travel to and from Eastern Suffolk BOCES programs. Exceptions to this must be authorized by the Special Education Director (for Special Education students) or a Technical Center administrator (for Career and Technical Education students) prior to the day the students drive. Only students with valid New York State drivers' licenses may be eligible to drive to ESBOCES programs. All decisions shall be consistent with a student's Individualized Education Program mandates for transportation and must take into account the specific program requirements and student-specific issues. In an emergency situation, permission for a student to travel in his/her own automobile may be granted upon receipt of a written request from the parent/guardian.
