2340F - CHAPERONES FOR TRIPS

Chaperones are not to invoke any kind of discipline on a student except in cases of imminent threat to that student's or other people's safety or well-being. A chaperone is to report any student behavior problems or inappropriate conduct of a chaperone or staff member to the trip leader(s) as soon as possible.

Each chaperone, as well as the trip leader(s), should model the behaviors expected of students throughout the times on the trip when s/he is associated with the students. When a chaperone is on free time away from the students, his/her behavior should be such that it would not create problems for or embarrassment to the trip leader(s) or the District.

The trip leader(s) is responsible for the conduct of the chaperones during the trip and should be knowledgeable of their whereabouts at all times and how they can be contacted in case of an emergency.
