In a decision issued November 1, the Labour Relations Board (LRB) has confirmed that administrators and school districts continue to have the authority to approve or deny field trips (see BCLRB No. B193/2011). The approval of field trips by administrators and school districts should continue to be made on the basis of the legitimate considerations in the various school districts, school policies regarding field trips, as well as considerations that ensure managers and excluded staff are being used to the best extent possible.
