 FIELD TRIPS ​Board Policy 121
Educational field trips occurring during the school hours, including overnight trips, require parental permission and the permission of each of the student’s teachers. Students will adhere to the following procedures when planning to attend a field trip:
1. Students will first obtain the parent signature on the school field trip release.
2. Students will then obtain the signatures of each teacher either permitting or refusing absence
from the class. Teachers will not sign the form if it does not have a parent signature.
3. On the week of the field trip, students must meet all academic eligibility requirements to attend.
Students who are failing at least one core class or two elective courses will be denied
participation in the trip.
4. Students must have their release form submitted to the sponsoring teacher by the end of the day
before the trip.
5. Students denied permission by a teacher(s) may have his/her case reviewed by the principal.
All rules and regulations as stated in the Plum Senior High School Parent/Student Handbook apply at all times during the trip. The administration reserves the right to deny students the privilege to attend field trips on the basis of excessive absenteeism, academic deficiency, or school conduct.
