The Edmonds School District recognizes that field trips, when used as a teaching strategy integral to the curriculum or to extra-curricular programs, are educationally sound components in the instructional/extra-curricular programs of the schools. Such trips must supplement and enrich classroom-extra-curricular programs by providing learning experiences in an environment beyond the school.

Three types of field trips or extended learning experiences are recognized. Each type requires various levels of approval prior to initiating any planning:

Type I

Same-Day, In-State Field Trips

* Approval by Principal/Program Manager or Designee

Type II

Overnight or Out-of-State Field Trips

* Approval by Principal/Program
And Outdoor Education Programs Manager or Designee
* Approval by Board of Directors

Type III

International Travel

* Approval by Principal/Program
Manager or Designee
* Approval by Board of Directors


Overnight, in-state field trips involving high school extra-curricular groups that are involved in State organization sanctioned playoffs, meetings, or competitions that are announced with notice too short to be scheduled on the next regular Board meeting may be approved by the superintendent or designee with notice to the Board of Directors.

The superintendent shall develop procedures for the preparation and operation of all types of field trips.
