The Border Land School Division recognizes the educational value of student travel.  It is the desire of the Division to encourage and support student travel, provided the learning experiences are an integral part of the instructional program.  Trips must properly provide for the cognitive, affective, and/or psychomotor development of students.  The planned activities must constitute a reasonable and effective means of extending school learning, student knowledge, and understanding.
Reasonable efforts shall be made to accommodate the needs of all students for travel activities.

 

Planning is a vital component of all student travel.  All plans shall be implemented in accordance with MAST guidelines. Board approval is required for all extended student travel.
