Any teacher planning a field trip must receive the principal/designee’s prior approval. The principal is responsible for approving field trips only after the educational justification and plans for students not attending have been explicitly stated. ALL Out-of-State and overnight field trips must be approved by the Principal/Designee, Lead Principal and Associate Superintendent one (1) month prior to the proposed date. The principal will submit only the Out-of- State/County and Overnight Field Trip Request Form, Field Trip Criteria/Signature Page and Field Trip Worksheet to the appropriate Lead Principal.
