Title
Bayside High School NJROTC Trip to South Carolina

Discussion

Bayside High School NJROTC is requesting School Board approval to conduct a field trip to the Marine Corps Recruit Depot at Parris Island, South Carolina; U.S.S. Yorktown at Patriots Point, South Carolina; and Fort Sumter, South Carolina, on January 13-16, 2010.

Approximately 46 cadets and five adult chaperones (both male and female chaperones) plan to travel by charter bus.  The participants will be staying at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in Parris Island on the nights of January 13-15.  The cadets will be in uniform while at Parris Island.

The group plans to leave Bayside High School at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 13, 2010, and return at approximately 11:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 16, 2010.  Two (2) school days will be missed (January 14 and 15).  The cost will be approximately $142.50 per cadet.  The cadets will conduct fundraising activities during October-December to defer individual expenses.  There will be no cost to the District.
