E3 STEM field trip policy: In order to go on a field trip, an E3 STEM student must be passing (D- or higher) all of their current AVHS classes 24 hours before the field trip departure time. Once a student is placed on the “ineligible for field trips” list, they need to speak with a member of the E3 STEM staff to be removed from the list. The staff member will have a brief conversation with the student and also check their current grades on Schoology.
