September 5, 2019 - Regular Meeting and Public Hearing on the 2019-2020 Budget
C8 - CTE Out of State and Overnight Field Trips

The School Board recognizes that field trips, when used for teaching and learning integral to the curriculum, are an educationally sound and important ingredient in the instructional program of the schools. Properly planned and executed field trips supplement and enrich classroom instruction by providing learning experiences that will enhance mastery of the curriculum standards of the State of Florida. A field trip is defined as any planned, student travel activity which is approved as par of the district's educational program and is under the direct supervision and control of an instructional staff member or any advisor as designated by the Superintendent.

Gap Analysis

Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSO) are co-curricular organizations for CTE students such as FFA, TSA, FBLA, HOSA, SkillsUSA, FCCLA. CTSO's extend teaching and learning through innovative programs, business and community partnerships and leadership experiences at the school, state and national levels. CTSO's are a powerful avenue for helping our nation address key challenges such as workforce development, student achievement, economic vitality and global competitiveness. CTSO's are authorized by the U.S. Congress in the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement Act.

Previous Outcomes

All out of state and overnight trips are selected, planned, evaluated, and approved or rejected in conformity with written district policy.

Expected Outcomes

It is important to recognize that CTSO's provide students leadership development skills as well as hands on learning through project based activities. CTSO events expose students to new experiences which increases their engagement within their educational experience.

Strategic Plan Goal

Strategy 1.3: Prepare all students to be full option graduates who are prepared for college, eligible to enlist in military services, or able to compete in the workforce.


The CTE Department recommends the school board approves out-of-state or overnight travel for any events on the official CTSO state calendars attached.
