An allowance for transportation, lunches, and school fees is only allowed for children regularly attending elementary or high school, college, or unpaid vocational training.
Provide an allowance for the cost of items required by the school, such as fees or material for special classes or projects. Allow the cost of transportation not to exceed 24¢ per mile when the child lives at least 1 1/2 miles from school and there is
no free transportation. Transportation for a lesser distance must be by a doctor's recommendation.
