Petitioner, a child care learning facility, was appropriately fined and subject to a 12-month-transportation restriction after the facility erroneously transported a pre-K student, without parental authorization, to an elementary school in which he was not enrolled. The violation arose as a result of a decision to rely on the children to accurately report the schools which they attend, instead of preparing a transportation attendance list in advance of the first week of school. This method of operating constituted a reckless disregard for the safety of children and justified the aforementioned sanctions.
