HAMILTON COUNTY, TN. (Times Free Press) -- Seven months after Signal Mountain High School teachers and students came under fire for consuming alcohol on a school-sponsored trip to the Bahamas, some school board members are eyeing a policy change and a possible end to such trips.
The Board of Education will hold a work session today to discuss its field trip policy and to talk about possible changes to next year's school calendar. This is the time of year many teachers and principals turn in trip requests, so officials said it's important to address any changes now.
The field trip issue stems from a March spring break cruise, after which seven Signal Mountain chaperone teachers and 16 students were punished for breaking school policy and drinking alcohol.
