College Tour Day 2017
Time and again New Tech families have expressed a desire for our school to do its best to provide as many learning experiences outside of the classroom experience as possible.
On April 19th, New Tech will take every student on one of four charter bus trips to tour two college campuses. Every student had a chance to list their preference for trips and we did our best to place each student on a bus headed for one of their top choices. The trips are as follows:
- 1 – Sierra College & University of Nevada, Reno
- 2 – CSU Chico & Butte College
- 3 – CSU East bay & San Jose State
- 4 – Dominican University of CA & Sonoma State
The trips are at no cost to the students and are being funded out of a $75,000 College Readiness Block Grant awarded to New Tech by the California Department of Education. The plan moving forward is to have a school-wide College Tour Day each spring. The school will provide sack lunches for all students. However, students can pack their own lunch as well. Additionally, there may be opportunities depending on the college campus for students to purchase food for those who wish to bring money.
Field Trip Permission slips will go home this week and are due back as soon as possible. Any student who does not wish to go on the trip, has the ability to stay on campus with one of our teachers who is staying behind to supervise students who do not wish to attend and those who fail to provide a permission slip.
If you have any questions about the trip, please contact the school and we will be happy to clarify any questions you may have.
