AGO 1968 NO. 24 > Jun 24 1968

When a student enrolled in a public school is being transported to and/or from school at the commencement or end of the school day by his parent, or some other person at the direction of the parent (e.g., either because the particular school district does not provide transportation or because the parent prefers to transport the child himself) neither the school district nor its employees can be regarded as having assumed and exercised control over the transportation so as to incur any liability in case of injury to the student.
