Discussion paper: Supported school transport for children with disability

A discussion paper has been prepared seeking feedback on how supported school transport could work under the NDIS or whether current arrangements should be retained.

The discussion paper is available at https://engage.dss.gov.au/supported-school-transport-and-transition-to-the-national-disability-insurance-scheme/supported-school-transport-and-transition-to-the-national-disability-insurance-scheme-discussion-paper/

There will be face-to-face consultations in every State including South Australia (TBA).

Currently supported school transport remains the responsibility of State and Territory governments until all governments have considered the outcomes of the consultation and agreed on an approach for how supported school transport might work under the NDIS.

Submissions close on 20 July 2018.
