Educational Trip Guidelines
On any Educational trip, the safety of students is by far the most important consideration. Follow guidelines to minimize the chances of a Educational trip disaster.
Hand out permission slips at least a month before the date of the trip. To avoid having to hound your students until the last minute, consider offering a class reward such as extra recess time if all permission slips come back at least a week before the trip.
Send home a notice to parents explaining the educational objectives of your trip and requesting volunteers
Assign Numbers to Your Students
If you have a large group of students, consider assigning each student a number at the beginning of the trip. Then, instead of checking off an attendance list or making a head count, you can ask students to call out their numbers in order in rapid fashion.
