Pupil Transportation-School Bus Accident Reports

Section 121.53 (6) of the Wisconsin Statutes requires that, "Within 10 days after its occurrence, every accident involving a motor vehicle while providing transportation under this subchapter shall be reported to the appropriate school board." A provision that required the school board to promptly report the accident to the state superintendent "on forms provided by the state superintendent" was repealed by 2005 Act 220. While such accidents must still be reported to the appropriate school board, it is no longer necessary for the school board to report to the Department of Public Instruction. The School Bus Accident Report form (PI-3110) is provided as a template for optional local use only.
