Student travel is an important supplement to the instructional program.

A District/Student activity (local and non-local) is a District or student sponsored activity involving enrolled TUSD students, that is directly related to the District’s curricular and extracurricular programs. A District/Student activity is an activity requiring the use of District student or private funds, tax credits, or the combination thereof, District personnel time or other resources, and volunteer time. Instructional or non-instructional time may be used in a District/Student activity. A District/Student activity requires approval of the Superintendent of Schools or designee.

A private activity (local and non-local) is defined basically as an activity which is not a District/Student activity and requires neither District monies or other resources, nor student activity fund monies. Such activities rely entirely on private resources. School personnel shall neither approve nor deny these types of activities.

Approval of a District/Student activity by the Superintendent of Schools or designee must be based on standards which include presence of a detailed itinerary, parental permission slips, safe places or conditions during the trip, reasonable use of school days, adequate supervision, and adherence to all requirements in Administrative Regulation 6153, Student Travel.
