Dear EWG Families, This message is intended to keep you informed about the status of field trips in EWG. As you may know, a recent decision by the Commissioner of Education eliminates our option (going forward) of charging students/families for costs associated with school-sponsored field trips. This has caused much confusion and concern among teachers, school leaders, and parents. Our primary immediate goal was to address the issue for the remainder of the current school year. At this point, we have plans in place at each school to ensure that our students enjoy the end-of-year trips that they are all looking forward to. For subsequent years, our plans are not yet fully developed. There are questions that remain and we are working closely with our professional organizations and the Department of Education to develop state-wide guidelines and procedures to address the financial impact of school-sponsored field trips. When we are clear on those guidelines, each of our schools will share relevant information with families. What we do know is that no family will be obligated to contribute for the cost of any school-sponsored trips. Fundraising and general donations are allowed. Our biggest concern relates to major trips like exchange programs, music trips, and other opportunities that we have offered to our students in the past. Under current parameters, we may not be able to continue with these experiences. As more information becomes available, I will share updates with the school community. This is something that we will continue to work on at the local and state levels. For now, enjoy the remainder of the school year and our upcoming summer break. Respectfully, James Erinakes Superintendent of Schools
