Field Trip packet
Prior to traveling on a trip, a field trip packet must be completed and signed by the principal (in-state trips). If such trip is to be out of state, the superintendents signature is also needed prior to any planning, collection of funds or attending. You are required to have this packet completed and turned into the secretary handling field trip requests (4 weeks) prior to any trip. Each school has a sub account designated specifically for field trips. Funds received from students for trips are deposited into this account, the purpose of which is to pay for the students' costs (i.e., transportation, entrance fee, etc.). The money collected is to be expended for the specific trip, with a minimal or zero balance remaining after all related costs have been paid. The trip coordinator is responsible for ascertaining all costs associated with the trip in order to collect the appropriate amount from each student to cover expenses. No student is to be denied participation in activities sponsored by the school district due to an inability to pay. Students unable to pay should be identified to a building administrator for determination of other funding sources. All monies collected and deposited must have a receipt associated with it. All receipts are turned in with each deposit. Two copies of the field trip form plus two copies of any checks must be attached with the Deposit request form. Deposits/Payments must be made through the secretary handling your financial budget. Please do not leave any money/checks in the secretary's mailbox or on the desk. If unavailable, please ask another secretary to secure and lock in the safe.
Prior to purchasing any items for student funds/team budget/509/Perkins/Curriculum Buy, a principal's requisition must be completed. It must be approved by the team leader, principal and turned into the secretary handling financial matters. After approval, the items will be ordered. Once the order is received please turn in the packing slip and any invoice you may receive for payment to the secretary handling your order. Once an invoice is received, if it is for student funds then a payment request form needs to be completed as well, payment will be submitted. For team budget money/509/Perkins/Curriculum Buy nothing further is needed for payment but the invoice. Please note that items purchased with your own money is discouraged. Please do not order products on your own, you must have an approved requisition prior for any order.

Team/district meetings are scheduled at the beginning of each year to go over these procedures. It is encouraged you attend.
