Field Trips




This procedure is for all types of school bus field trips (Coach driven, Regular Ed and Special Needs)

The authorized representative must approve all field trip requisitions.
Bus routes are our first priority and field trips second. Trips need to be scheduled Monday thru Friday departing your campus at or after 9:00 a.m. and must return to your campus by 1:30 p.m. (or wait until after 5:30 p.m. for pickup and return to campus). Non-UIL trips which do not fall within this time period will not be approved due to limited resources.
Shuttle trips must be explained in detail on your request.
If a car seat or a bus with seat belts is needed, you must specify this on the form.
