Districts should have a clear policy in place that ensures that all field trips, whether planned by a private provider or an in-district school, go through a central district approval process.
This policy should also include the stipulation that parents are not to be charged for field trips.

The teacher should explain the planned field trip to parents and receive permission slips for each child for each trip. The teacher must have children and parents names, phone numbers and emergency numbers with them at all times.
An accurate list of children in attendance on the day of the trip must be supplied. The teacher should decide how children will be grouped with adults. A place for regrouping and checkpoints should be identified at each trip site.
Supervision of all children at all times is of course essential. A designated staff person for each group should have the responsibility of carrying a first aid kit, money and needed supplies.
