A Study of School Board Policies and Administrative Procedures for Dealing with Field Trips in School Districts in Cities with Populations over 100,000 in the United States.
Krepel, Wayne J.; DuVall, Charles R.
This study was intended to add to the body of knowledge dealing with school board policies concerning field trips. A questionnaire, mailed to superintendents in 149 cities, was designed to (1) ascertain the existence of school board policies (written or unwritten) pertaining to field trips; (2) determine the person(s) or group(s) who pass on the acceptability of such trips and supervise them for the schools and school districts; (3) isolate the criteria used for determining the acceptability of these trips; and (4) obtain copies of written policies and administrative procedures used in implementing these policies in the individual school districts. Findings, conclusions, and recommendations for further study are presented. A related document is EA 004 351. (JF)
