Policy No. 2320

The board of directors of Tacoma School District No. 10 considers school-sponsored individual student and student group trips part of the educational program and recognizes that opening the community and world around us as an environment for learning enhances and reinforces classroom instruction.

Field trips to various locations away from the school campus may be approved if those trips have specific educational value and/or are designed to further student achievement.

All field trips must be well planned and adequately supervised. Student safety and well-being shall be the primary considerations.

A field trip is a school-supervised activity involving one or more students investigating or participating in real and life-like experiences away from the classroom.

The board of directors, superintendent, school district administration, building administrator/ principal, or teacher in conjunction with an administrator, shall have the right to cancel any field trip at any time.

The superintendent is authorized to develop and implement the necessary regulations for the administration of this policy.
