Southwest Middle School Trip to 2015 National TSA Conference and Competition in Grapevine, Texas


The Southwest Middle School Technology Student Association is requesting Board approval to attend the National TSA Conference and Competition in Grapevine, Texas (greater Dallas area), on June 28 - July 2, 2015.

The group consists of 15 students and five chaperones.  Part of the group plans to fly to Dallas and part of the group will drive with their parents.  It is anticipated that the group that is flying will depart Orlando to Dallas on the morning of June 28, and return the evening of July 2.

The students will be responsible for the cost of the trip which is estimated at $908 per student/chaperone.  The cost will include registration, hotel accommodations, airline transportation and shuttle service (if flying), and food.  The group will be staying at the Gaylord Texan Hotel and Conference Center in Grapevine, Texas.  The students will be the recipients of fundraising activities to offset expenses.  There will be no cost to the District.

Approve the trip request by Southwest Middle School for students and chaperones to attend the 2015 National TSA Conference and Competition in Grapevine, Texas, on June 28 - July 2, 2015.
