A new administrative court ruling requires a Northern California school district to allow a 6-year-old kindergartner with a severe form of epilepsy to ride the school bus with a prescribed cannabis oil-based pharmaceutical. The cannabidiol medicine is exclusively carried and administered by her LVN nurse upon onset of the girls epilepsy symptoms, including on the school bus she rides daily. The ruling could force student transporters nationwide to reevaluate current school district guidelines for transporting students with disabilities and special health care needs.

“I love coming here. It’s like the “Shark Tank” of our industry,” attendee Heather Handschin commented during the Trade Show held on day four of last month’s national Transporting Students with Disabilities and Preschoolers Conference. Several fellow attendees entering the Trade Show with her expressed the same level of anticipation. For their part, the vendors were ready and eager to share their new offerings, flagship products or improved staples.
