Field Trips

The District offers free field trips to qualifying schools, including limited transportation reimbursement. To qualify, schools must be registered with the District's Let's Stop Waste at School (LSW) program and be willing to submit student reflections (PDF) after the trip.

PLEASE NOTE:  At least 1 adult chaperone is required for every 10 students on our field trips.  (The America Recycles Day field trip requires 1 chaperone for every 7 students.)
