123B.86 EQUAL TREATMENT.
    Subdivision 1. General provisions. A district shall provide equal transportation within the
district for all school children to any school when transportation is deemed necessary by the
school board because of distance or traffic condition in like manner and form as provided in
sections 123B.88 and 123B.92, when applicable.
    Subd. 2. Nonpublic school students. (a) The board of any local district must provide school
bus transportation to the district boundary for school children residing in the district at least the
same distance from a nonpublic school actually attended in another district as public school pupils
are transported in the transporting district. Such transportation must be provided whether or not
there is another nonpublic school within the transporting district, if the transportation is to schools
maintaining grades or departments not maintained in the district or if the attendance of such
children at school can more safely, economically, or conveniently be provided for by such means.
(b) The school board of any local district may provide school bus transportation to a
nonpublic school in another district for school children residing in the district and attending that
school, whether or not there is another nonpublic school within the transporting district, if the
transportation is to schools maintaining grades or departments not maintained in the district or
if the attendance of such children at school can more safely, economically, or conveniently be
provided for by such means. If the board transports children to a nonpublic school located in
another district, the nonpublic school must pay the cost of such transportation provided outside
the district boundaries.
    Subd. 3. Board control. When transportation is provided, the scheduling of routes, manner
and method of transportation, control and discipline of school children and any other matter
relating thereto shall be within the sole discretion, control and management of the board.
    Subd. 4. Rules. The commissioner of education may amend rules relating to equal
transportation.
