ROCHESTER, MN — Students in Rochester may soon be seeing changes to the types of field trips they take.

The school board recently had a study session where they reviewed some board policies, one of which was field trips.

What they discussed was eliminating field trips that were considered “just for fun,” or ones that did not connect to what was going on in the classroom.

“We just wanted to really look at our trips, making sure they’re connected to the classroom and making sure that we’re not charging students for things that we shouldn’t be charging them for, but it really has nothing to do with budget reductions or anything like that,” said Superintendent Michael Munoz.

They have to wait 30 days before bringing it back in front of the board. Munoz said he expects it to move forward and take effect this coming school year.
