Title
Field Trip - Titusville High School Music Department Trip to New York City, New York

Discussion

Titusville High School's Music department is requesting permission to travel to New York City to attend various professional musical productions including the New York Philharmonic and a Broadway show. The group consists of 59 members - 43 students, two instructors, and 14 BPS fingerprinted and approved chaperones.

Cost of the trip is $1,200 per person. Students raised funds to offset the cost of the trip. While this trip is not a mandatory event, students are encouraged to participate as it provides educational and cultural experiences many will never have otherwise. Students are presented with multiple opportunities to raise the money to pay for their trip costs. No child should be excluded for inability to pay. Included in the trip cost are airline tickets, lodging, breakfast and dinner for four days and event tickets. Students will only pay for lunches. THERE IS NO COST TO THE DISTRICT.

Students will depart from Titusville High School on the morning of Thursday, May 25, 2017 and return to Titusville High School on Sunday, May 28, 2017. Students will not miss any time from school. Students will travel as a group to all events and will stay at the Westin New York at Times Square.
