POLICY

FIELD TRIPS

 
Because of Act 372, field trips may be scheduled only if tax revenues are not used. Consequently, field trips may be scheduled if financed by school related organizations such as PTA, Band Parents, Touchdown Club, etc. When appropriate, participating students may also contribute to the cost of field trips.

Act 372 provides as follows:
“When provision is made by a Board of School Directors
for the transportation of public school pupils to and from
such schools or to and from any point in the Commonwealth
in order to provide field trips as herein provided, the Board
of School Directors shall also make identical provisions for
the free transportation of pupils who regularly attend non-
public kindergarten, elementary and high schools not operated
for profit to and from schools or to and from any points in the
Commonwealth in order to provide field trips as herein provided.”

Note:
All field trip requests should be submitted to the principal’s office
at least four weeks in advance of designated trip. THE DISTRICT
OFFICE MUST HAVE A THREE WEEK MINIMUM NOTICE TO
FACILITATE TRANSPORTATION SCHEDULING.
