Purpose: Field Trips
The overarching purpose of a field trip is to enhance the educational program that is provided to the student; that is, the goal of a field trip is to improve student achievement. A field trip must be an extension of the learning that occurs in the regular curriculum. To that end, any field trip must directly represent the instructional achievement goals of the day-to-day instructional planning in the classroom, or of the social, emotional, behavioral and cultural achievement goals of the classroom and school.
To meet these learning objectives, it is important that the field trip is carefully planned, and that the field trip plan ensures that the learning occurs in a safe and well supervised environment.
Please submit all requested documents a minimal of 45 days before the event.
