Field Trip Planning Information

Overview: (PB 6153 a)The Governing Board recognizes that school-sponsored trips are an important component of a student’s development and supplement and enrich the classroom learning experience. School-sponsored trips may be conducted in connection with the district’s course of study or school related social, educational, cultural, athletic, school band activities, or other extracurricular or co-curricular activities. A field trip to a foreign country may be permitted to familiarize students with the language, history, geography, natural science, and other studies relative to the district’s course of study.
