New Policies School Year 2012-2013


Registration for Fall AFES Trips Opens Sept. 10; Registration for Spring AFES Trips Opens Dec. 3


Based on teacher feedback,  the DC Collaborative will stagger Fall and Spring fieldtrip Registration into two separate opening dates in order to try to alleviate overloading the system. Registration for Fall trips opens Sept. 10 and registration for Spring trips opens Dec. 3.   Teachers also suggested that we open registration at 7 am on those days so it does not interfere with the teaching day.


Registration Dates


Fall Registration (trips 9/15-12/12/2012)- Monday, September 10th, 7 a.m. 

Spring Registration (trips 1/7-6/14/2013)-Monday, December 3rd, 7 a.m.
