Faculty should contact their direct supervisor for approval of field trips or other college-sponsored trips, and to make transportation arrangements. When possible, trips should be scheduled so that students will not be absent from other classes.

Field trips are defined as being an activity that is an integral part of classroom instruction. Field trips that require students to miss classes should be kept to a minimum. Absences from classes for field trips must be approved in advance by the direct supervisor. Students will assume responsibility for making up all work missed and will not be penalized for these approved absences.

Vehicle usage for field trip travel must conform to the OP 090 Transportation Policy in the CWI Policies and Procedures Manual.
