    *Superintendent/Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services may review field trips that cannot meet the necessary timelines. These will be the exception and not an ongoing practice as our Board policy clearly states the Board requires pre-approval for all overnight and out-of-state school-sponsored trips. If there is a possibility that a student/group of students may qualify for a competition, event, or trip, get pre-approval with tentative dates. This can also be done at the beginning of the school year for possible regional or state competitions with dates TBD if students qualify.

    The following documents may also be needed, depending on the type of transportation used, risk assessment, and for staff reference.
