Syracuse University’s policy regarding the use of personal vehicles is that they should be used only on a voluntary basis. Students opting to make their own arrangements are expected to assume financial responsibility for getting to and from their assigned school/agency. Owners/drivers must provide their own insurance coverage; all student participants choosing to ride or transport others in a private automobile do so voluntarily and at their own risk. The University does not provide any insurance and does not assume any liability for students making their own transportation arrangements.
The university provides transportation for placements in the Fall 2019 semester in Roxboro Road Elementary and Middle School, Solvay Elementary and High School, and many schools in the Jamesville-Dewitt and Syracuse City School Districts.
For the dates that the Shaw Center does not operate, a separate bus specifically for SOE students needing to be in field placements will be in operation. Schedules will be sent directly to students as well as being posted on Blackboard.
If you are a student in the School of Education (SOE) who is assigned to a field placements at one of these districts/schools, and choose to use university transportation for the semester, you are required to register at the Shaw Center. Please submit a request at least two working days before your placement begins. You are not allowed on the bus unless you have filled out a request form and your name is on the bus driver’s list.
Instructions for requesting transportation for the semester are available on the Shaw Center website. If you have questions about the form itself, please contact the Shaw Center directly. at email@example.com. Please be respectful and professional in all of your interactions with the staff at the Shaw Center. Once the Request Form is completed, you will receive instructions/directions regarding responsibilities, how to access the schedule, and emergency safety information.
To the extent possible, times for drop off and pickup will be consistent and will meet your specific timeframe; however, with the numbers of students from around campus using this service the scheduled times may vary, especially site pick-ups as the semester progresses. If you have questions or concerns about transportation after completing the forms and receiving instructions, please contact the Shaw Center.
