Field trips are paid $26.70/hour in 15-minute increments after the first hour, 14 hours/day max.

    Field trips are subject to a 1 hour minimum on school days and a 3 hour minimum on non-school days.

    One-way trips should be paid for round trip time and miles.  A minimum of at least ONE (1) or THREE (3) hours for each.

    Mileage is paid round trip at the rate of $0.70/mile.

    As a general rule, field trips are scheduled between 9:30 AM and 1:30 PM on regular school days.  Please try and avoid scheduling trips on Early Release Days.  

    Groups must leave the destination site in enough time to have the bus back to the school at the confirmed return time.  Buses that return late after 1:30 PM from a field trip impact the timeliness of the PM Home-to-School Services.
