Brockton Public Schools

School Committee Policy


Field trips can bring the school and community closer together, which can result in real life experiences that enrich the curriculum for students and also bring about better public relations. The Committee will encourage field trips as an integral part of the instructional programs in the schools.

The Superintendent will establish regulations to assure that:

  1. All students have parental permission for trips.
  2. All trips are properly supervised.
  3. All safety precautions are observed.
  4. All trips contribute substantially to the educational program.

All out-of-state, extended (overnight) trips and excursions and travel between the hours of midnight and 6:00 a.m., must have advance approval of the School Committee. The approval process should be completed prior to engaging students in fundraising activities or other preparations for the trip. Fundraising activities for such trips will be subject to approval by the appropriate administrator.
