TR-61-09C TO: Transportation Supervisors FROM: Bruce D. Little, Senior Transportation Consultant, 303.866.6655 Greta Bleau, Senior Transportation Consultant, (303) 866-6656 DATE: July 1, 2009 SUBJECT: Medical Information Form for Small Vehicle Operators The revised Rules For The Operation Of School Transportation Vehicles, 1 CCR 301.26 202.02 (a)(7) now states “Medical history shall be provided annually on a CDE approved form. Any yes annotations shall require a doctors qualification”. Enclosed is the form, STU-17, Medical Information – Activity Trip/Small Vehicle Operators. Have each activity trip/small vehicle and small (14 or less capacity) multifunction bus operator complete and submit this form every year. As stated in the rule, if any item is marked “yes”, a doctor needs to qualify that the “yes” item will not adversely affect the operator safely transporting students in the district vehicle. The rules do not specify a standard that the “yes” must meet. The objective of this rule is to give you a tool to reduce the possibility that a teacher or coach would not be physically fit to safely transport students. Please file this completed form with the operators annual written test. All enclosures should be placed in Section C of the Colorado School Transportation Administrator's Reference Manual. Please mark off TR-61-09C on the Check List page at the front of the manual.
