The School committee recognizes that field trips can be a valuable learning tool which enriches the school curriculum for students. It is the desire of the Committee to encourage field trips as an integral part of the total school program and curriculum.


The superintendent will establish regulations to assure that:


1. All trips contribute substantially to the educational program.


2. All safety precautions are observed.


3. All students have parental permission for trips off school property.


4. All trips are properly supervised.


5. All trip expenses will be paid for by students, however, in cases of financial hardship the principal will arrange for student expenses.


All out-of-state or overnight trips and excursions, except those required for student participation in tournament competition or contests, must have advance approval of the school committee on a yearly basis. Fundraising activities for such trips will be subject to approval by the appropriate Administrator.


See Principals in each building for copies of guidelines implementing this policy.
