Assembly Bill 1297 was authored by Assembly Member Morrow and signed into law by the Governor on October 6, 1997. This law went into effect on January 1, 1998, and requires the superintendent of a school district that provides transportation to or from a school or school activity to prepare a transportation safety plan containing procedures for school personnel to follow to ensure the safe transportation of students. The law also requires that a copy of the plan be retained at each school subject to the plan and that this plan be made available upon request to an officer of the Department of the California Highway Patrol.
