Title
Contract/Field Trip - Cocoa High Football Team to New Jersey and New York

Discussion

The Cocoa High football program has been afforded the opportunity to travel to New York and New Jersey October 12-14, 2012 for a regular season football game against Bergen Catholic High School.  The trip will only require 2.5 hours missed from school.  After playing the football game on Saturday, October 13th, the students will be able to visit the Ground Zero memorial on Sunday. 

We have secured tickets into the Ground Zero memorial/museum and students will take part in the educational program.  The curriculum provided by Ground Zero will be utilized.  Additional information regarding the 911 memorial is available at www.911memorial.org/visit

All expenses for travel, hotel, and most meals will be paid for by the host school.  We have secured donations for any additional meals.  There will be no expense to the school, district, or families.  Specific details on flight times and lodging can be provided once board approval has been secured.  The contract and preliminary itinerary has been provided for review.



Recommendation
Approve the contract and request for the Cocoa High football team to travel to New Jersey for a football game against Bergen Catholic High School and visit to the Ground Zero memorial in New York October 12-14, 2012.
