6028 - Field Trips

 

6028

Field Trips

 

The board encourages instructional staff to incorporate field trips into the curriculum.  These trips should normally be conducted during the school day.

 

1.     General Conditions

 

All trips must be pre-approved by the teacher’s building principal.  Out-of-state and overnight trips require pre-approval by the board.  The superintendent and principals will develop guidelines for approval of trips and communicate those guidelines to teaching staff.

 

2.     Parental Permission

 

Each student must submit a signed parental permission slip prior to being allowed to attend a field trip.  A new permission slip must be submitted for each trip. Caregivers, as that term is defined in the Nebraska Strengthening Families Act, shall be permitted to sign parental permission slips.

 

3.     Supervision

 

Sponsoring teachers must ensure that students are adequately supervised and chaperoned by a responsible adult at all times during field trips.  Whether paid staff or volunteers, chaperones are prohibited from drinking alcoholic beverages of any kind at any time during any field trip.  All chaperones must be at least 21 years of age.  Any chaperone who drives students must possess a valid driver’s license.  Chaperones who drive students in private vehicles must possess adequate insurance coverage.

 

4.     Student Conduct

 

Students must comply with the student code of conduct, any applicable extracurricular conduct codes, and all directives by trip chaperones.
