Wake Board Approves New Guidelines For Water-Related Field Trips

Posted July 1, 2003

— Wake County students may spend less time on the water during school field trips.

The school board voted Monday to put new restrictions on water-related field trips. Area superintendents will have to approve trips that involve swimming, boating and other water activities.

Superintendents will also be required to create a safety plan for each outing. Many Wake County schools take students to the Neuse River or the coast as part of their studies.
