Mid-Placer Public Schools Transportation Agency is a Joint Powers Authority (JPA) created by the school districts we serve. Mid-Placer is a separate entity from the schools we serve. However, the state treats Mid-Placer as if it is a small school district.
A JPA is a Joint Powers Authority. The California Government Code in Title I, Division 7, Chapter 5 Article I (sections 6500 et seq.), also known as the Joint Exercise of Power Act, authorized separate public agencies to form Joint Powers Agreements for any reason that will mutually benefit them. Joint Powers Agreements are utilized to provide municipalities common and shared police, fire or redevelopment services. School Districts and often form JPAs for transportation and and insurance.
