TK-8 District of Choice


Instruction > Board Policy 6153 - School-Sponsored Trips

The Board of Trustees encourages its teachers to take part in field trips, study trips, and school excursions which will enhance the students' appreciation of the relationship of subject matter presented in the regular classroom. The carefully planned field trips will enrich the education experience of children, and will allow students to have first hand evidence or practical application of the area of study.

On all school-sponsored trips involving students, provision will be made for proper supervision by school employees. Parents/Guardians are permitted to assist in such supervision.

The 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 cocurricular activities.

No field trip shall be authorized if any student would be excluded from participation because of a lack of sufficient funds. (Education Code 35330)
