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 November 19-22, 2008.  Bayside NJROTC will conduct most of this trip with 50 Titusville High School NJROTC cadets.

Approximately 50 cadets and five adult 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 November 19-22.  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, November 19, 2008, and return at approximately 11:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 22, 2008.  Two (2) school days will be missed (November 20-21).  The cost will be approximately $157 per cadet.  The cadets will conduct fundraising activities during August-November to defer individual expenses.  There will be no cost to the District.
