Minnesota Statutes Section 123B.84-.87, titled Equal Treatment in Transporting Students ("Statute"), ensures that all students in the State of Minnesota who are required to attend elementary and secondary schools receive equal treatment in transportation to school. The Statute allows the Board of nonpublic schools to either utilize Special School District No. 1 transportation or the nonpublic school may provide its own transportation. Special School District No. 1 receives transportation funding from the State of Minnesota for students residing in the city of Minneapolis. When a nonpublic school elects to provide its own transportation, then Special School District No. 1 must provide ninety-five percent of funding it receives from the State of Minnesota to the nonpublic school and is allowed to hold five percent for administration purposes.

Three nonpublic schools, including DeLaSalle High School, Minnehaha Academy, and Cristo Rey Jesuit School elected to provide their own transportation during the 2021-2022 school year.

Special School District No. 1 is required by statute to pay these funds.
