Changes can only be made via PeopleSoft. School Bus Contractors of NBOE Omnibus Operators, or OPT Central Office staff are unable to make modifications to field trips after the trip has been approved in PeopleSoft.

A second approval in Peoplesoft is required. Once approved in PeopleSoft from OPT go into the bus form and click on comments to retrieve bus information.

If vendor transportation is arranged, call the bus company to cancel the bus, get the name of the person you spoke to and send an email to and Dottie Croner for notification of the cancellation. 

Please do not call OPT to cancel vendor provided buses. Please notify the school bus contractor directly.

Access PeopleSoft and edit your bus form to reflect the cost you were given in the email from OPT to increase costs.
