FIELD TRIP UPDATE - A message from the Superintendent At the last School Committee meeting, the field trip policy amendment (#8604) was presented and passed to reflect changes to the interpretation of the law regarding funding and charging families. Our policy maintains maximum flexibility in securing funds to offer as many meaningful, curriculum-based field trips as possible. Fundraising, grants, donations from community members/parents, or sponsorship from organizations such as PTO are all acceptable ways to fund trips, within the parameters of the amended policy. School principals and field trip organizers can answer specific questions about individual trips. We will continue to monitor implementation of this policy, as well as activity at the state level, to determine if any adjustments need to be made to our current plan.
