    FIELD TRIP POLICY & PROCEDURES

    Field trips are defined as educational experiences conducted during the school hours and planned

    by a teacher to correlate with the regular classroom instructional program. Field trips may be an

    integral part of classroom instruction. The experiences gained during field trips give relevance

    and meaning to content knowledge. Teachers are encouraged to develop an annual calendar of

    planned grade level field trips so as to ensure correlation with the curriculum.

    PROCEDURES

    Local schools are to develop procedures for field trip approval, securing transportation,

    collecting required fees, and accommodating necessary schedule adjustments.

    1. All field trips listed in the Quick List Field Trip Guide for Grades K-6 must be

    approved by the principal.

    2. Office of Instructional Services must approve any out-of-state field trips. A field trip

    request form must be completed, signed by the principal, and sent to the appropriate

    Executive Director, at least four (4) weeks prior to the date of the trip for final

    approval.

    o Principal must have an agenda for a safety meeting with chaperones and

    students in advance of the trip. The meeting must include a review of the trip

    itinerary and what is expected from each student and each chaperone at every

    stop and during the transportation of students. Parents should be invited to this

    meeting.

    o Chaperones must be assigned specific groups of students. These groups must

    work together in a buddy system with students and their chaperone staying

    together throughout the trip. Students who do not cooperate and work with

    their group will not be allowed to participate in future fieldtrips.

    o Students are required to stay with their chaperone during meals and may only

    eat at the predetermined restaurant(s).

    o Rest stops and meal stops must be preplanned. Restaurants should be called in

    advance to provide them notice of the planned stop and to discuss logistics for

    parking buses, safely moving students between buses and the restaurant(s) and

    to allow the restaurant to prepare for the visit.

    3. The teacher should request approval from the principal for any field trip, providing

    specific information related to date, time, location, and instructional objective.

    4. Permission/denial for all in-county trips are the responsibility of the principal.

    5. Montgomery Public Schools Trip Permission forms for any off campus field

    trip/activity are to be signed by parents or guardians for each student making the field

    trip. Permission slips are to be completed for each field trip and kept on file in the

    school office. (Verbal permission by phone will not suffice.)

    6. All information related to the field trip, including the permission form is to be sent

    home only AFTER the principal has approved the trip including the date, time and

    arrangements.

    7. Trips which require pupils to pay entrance fees, fares, or any other money should be

    kept to a minimum. No child will be denied the opportunity to participate in a field

    trip experience because of a prohibitive cost.

    8. Trips for recreational or holiday celebration purposes should not be undertaken by the

    school.

    9. Arrangements for transportation and parental assistance are the responsibility of the

    local school. The Office of Instructional Support Services recommends one adult per

    every ten students. All field trips must be chaperoned by school personnel. The use

    of spouses or other adult relatives as chaperones should be limited. Parents

    assistance is encouraged.

    10. Student should be made aware of the importance of behavior and the image projected

    on field trips. Special attention should be given to the dress of students and adults.

    Educational field trips are school functions.

    11. The teacher is required to notify the cafeteria personnel at least two weeks prior to the

    trip, in the event lunches are needed.

    12. Daily medications should be kept in the custody of the teacher if students are not

    expected to return to the school site prior to the scheduled dosage time.

    13. Siblings may not attend field trips.

    14. Substitutes may go on field trips if accompanied by a certified staff member from the

    school. Substitutes should not be solely responsible for taking students on field trips.

  • 5

    15. Recreational field trips should not be considered during the instructional school day.

    Montgomery Public School buses will not be used to transport students for

    recreational field trips during the instructional school day.

    16. System-wide field trips are mandatory and 100% school participation required.

    17. A child should not be excluded from a field trip for disciplinary reasons. However, if

    a child requires close supervision, the parents will be required to accompany the child

    on the trip.

    18. A list of everyone on the bus students, teachers, chaperones (also see #19), bus

    driver, and emergency contact numbers (parent/guardian for students) must be kept

    on the bus.

    19. The names of parents, guardians or any adult who is not an MPS employee must be

    forwarded to Bobby Crew, along with a signed and dated background form. These

    forms may be obtained from Human Resources and should be faxed to 334-269-6158.

    This should be done at least 48 hours prior to the trip.

    20. Any parent, guardian or adult furnishing transportation must provide a copy of their

    current drivers license and a form indicating that their vehicle is insured.

    21. This list must be e-mailed to Brenda Golab (Operations), Bobby Crew, and Donald

    Dotson in advance of the field trip

    22. This list must contain cell phone numbers of MPS employees on the trip.

    23. Bobby Crew (Chief of Security) 334-850-1580 or Curtis Forte (Internal Investigator)

    334-850-1242 will be contacted in reference to any emergency encountered on the

    trip.

    NOTE: Please refer to Field Trip Policy IFCB before scheduling field trips.

    Overnight Field Trips

    Request(s) for overnight field trips should be forwarded to the Office of Instructional Support

    Services. The following items should be considered when planning an overnight field trip:

    Any medical needs of the student that should be brought to the attention of the

    person in charge

    Permission to give treatment (medical, hospital, etc.)

    Directions for parent or guardian in case of an emergency

    Outline of emergency steps emergency (availability of nurses, paramedics, etc.)

    A brief narrative (attachment) outlining objectives justifying the nature and

    importance of the trip

    ADDITIONAL NOTES

    Provisions shall be made for non-participating students to continue their learning

    experiences at school.

    Students shall not be deprived of the opportunity to participate in educational field trips

    because of the parents or guardians inability to pay the assessed fee. Local schools will

    provide the fee for students unable to pay for in-county field trips. Costs should not be

    passed on to students who can pay. In the event a teacher is absent on the day of a field

    trip that is prepaid or is a one-time performance, it is recommended that the principal

    make necessary arrangements to avoid cancellation.

    Primary supervision for students participating in educational field trips is rendered by

    professional employees of the Montgomery Public School System. Chaperones are

    adults who accompany the teacher(s) and students with the understanding that the teacher

    holds the leadership position and is responsible for all decisions. Authorization forms for

    all chaperones participating in educational field trips shall be completed, signed by the

    principal and retained in the school office. (See forms.) Principals may determine that a

    chaperone be excluded from the educational field trip for the following reasons:

    Inappropriate behavior

    Extenuating circumstances that do not permit full participation

    Parents who drive cars not approved by principals for educational field trips

    Parents who are unable to stay for the duration of the field trip

    Parents who wish to include other small children and babies

  • 7

    All out-of-county/in-county educational field trips should be approved by the principal.

    These field trips should be planned and conducted in a manner that would allow students

    to be back at school for lunch. However, if the distance, length, and purpose of an

    educational field trip necessitate eating away from school, arrangements must be made

    with the school lunchroom for sack lunches. The actual field trip will include only those

    places identified on the request form. Any educational field trip which involves one full

    class or a composite of thirty-five students or more, shall require transportation by bus

    only. Under certain conditions Special Education classes may be excluded from this

    requirement. Any educational field trip, which involves less than one full class or

    composite of 35 students, shall require transportation (vehicle) provided by or approved

    by the principal.

    Exceptions to Established Procedures

    Supervising teachers shall report in writing to the principal any irregularities or accidents

    that occur during an educational field trip.

    Educational field trips are not recommended after May 3, 2014.

    Codes of Conduct and appropriate rules of safety shall be thoroughly discussed

    prior to each educational field trip. All system and local school Codes of Conduct

    shall be enforced.

    Trips planned to take place during weekends, holidays (winter, spring, summer

    vacations) shall not be considered as school functions, and become the complete

    responsibility of the sponsor(s) and parents of those students participating in the

    activity. However, any time funds for trips are collected and deposited in a local

    school account; said trip is considered to be school sponsored.

    Principals Responsibilities

    The principal is responsible for the approval of selected sites, transportation arrangements, and

    supervisory personnel (teachers and chaperones) involved in educational field trips. The

    principal is also responsible for insuring, to the degree possible, the safety and well-being of

    students; therefore, all students are expected to be full participants in all educational field trips.

    This includes utilizing transportation provided/approved by the school, the supervision by

    teachers and approved chaperones, and visits to only those places identified on the request form.

    Any deviation from this procedure will require prior notification/approval from the principal.

    REMINDER: MPS does not have insurance for vehicles that are not system owned.

    Students should not be removed from a field trip at any point during the trip by

    parents, guardians, or others without permission from the principal.
