The Board does not approve the use of private automobiles for transportation of students by district employees for District field trips and activities. The Board approves the use of school buses and District approved commercial transportation for field trips and activity trips. Students participating in field trips or other student activities are required to ride the bus to and from that activity.
Parents/guardians are responsible for the transporting of students for university classes, teacher training, and job/work experiences. Parents/guardians may be responsible for the transportation of their students to the destination of school activities inside the community if no district transportation is provided, i.e. Higher Ed Day at the University of Idaho or an Environmental Club cleanup at Mountain View Park.
Activity students may be released to their parent(s)/guardian(s) upon prior written request from the parent(s)/guardian(s) and approval of the Principal or Activity Director. Where student schedules conflict with another school recognized activity, prior permission may be granted by the Principal/Activity Director for one parent/guardian to transport his/her student. Students who arrive at an activity under any other arrangement are ineligible to participate and subject to disciplinary action. (1-25-05)
