FIELD TRIPS AND STUDENT TRAVEL
The Board of Education recognizes that travel beyond the school campus can enhance learning for students in the public schools of Hawaii. Therefore, schools are encouraged to promote travel within the State of Hawaii, to the continental United States, and to foreign countries as part of their educational program.
Field trips and travel shall be permitted only when the derived educational benefits are clearly linked to and support ongoing standards-based classroom studies. Schools shall be cognizant of the safety and welfare of all participants on field trips and student travel, and shall have contingency plans, recognizing that trips may need to be cancelled, delayed, or otherwise revised.
