Let’s go on a Field Trip!

The District defines field trips as travel away from the school premises, under the supervision of a staff member, for the purpose of affording students a direct learning experience not available in the classroom. The District recognizes that field trips, when used for teaching and learning integral to the curriculum, are an educationally sound and important ingredient in the instructional program of the schools. Below are the basics along with the paperwork needed. Detailed field trip information can be found on the District website.
