Check school policy on overnight trips
Determine how to secure approval to attend overnight conventions. TAs should check with their school administration about policies and procedures regarding overnight conventions. What does your Chapter need to attend overnight conventions and review any relevant school or district policies? Review convention dates and locations.
Review how to secure transportation. Sometimes transportation must be scheduled far in advance of conventions. Check with the appropriate personnel at your school about booking buses or securing approval for parents to drive.
Permission Forms and Liability. JSA requires a permission slip for each attendee. Determine if your school or district requires additional permission forms to be submitted.
Announce convention dates to your chapter. Dates and locations may be found on the Calendar or by contacting your region’s Program Director.
