The Assabet Valley Collaborative provides safe, reliable, and cost effective special education transportation services by contracting with transportation vendors on behalf of our member school districts. We view transportation as an integral part of each student's education and contract with vendors who share our passion and expertise in serving students with disabilities.
AVC transports nearly 500 students annually and services over 25 districts. Our contract requires vendors to employ highly trained drivers and monitors that drive well-maintained and equipped vehicles. AVC leverages volume from many districts; transportation vendors submit competitive rates to AVC resulting in cost savings for special education transportation. Services include:
- In-district and out-of-district McKinney Vento, field trips, community-based instruction, and after school services
- Monitored two-way radios, GPS, and video monitoring
- Pre-screened (CORI and fingerprinting) and specially trained drivers and monitors
