Armijo Student Field Trip Policy

  • Students with a signed parent permission form may participate in both field trips and activity trips.
  • Teachers may develop no-academic criteria to determine whether a student may or may not participate in an activity trip.
  • These criteria must be reviewed and approved by the administration prior to approval to take the activity trip.
  • These criteria must be communicated effectively to the families no later than 3 days after the activity trip is approved.
  • Teachers may not exclude any student from participation on any field trip.
  • Students whose parents do not allow them to attend a field trip will be allowed an educational opportunity similar in nature to that of the students on the field trip.
  • Teachers will not make parent attendance on a field or activity trip a condition for student participation.
  • Teachers will not make academic performance a condition for participation on any field trip

Field trips are an extension of the classroom; therefore students cannot be excluded from participation on a field trip except by their parents.

Activity trips are to reward students for performance based on criteria. The criteria have to be clear and approved prior to the trip being approved.  The reward should not be dependent on parents.  These trips are typically saved for the end of the year.
