Summary: Heritage High School's (HHS) drama teacher, Mr. Greg Newman, has submitted an overnight field trip request for drama students to attend the 2018 California State Thespian Conference in Upland, California, March 28-30, 2019. The California State Thespian Conference is one of the largest state conferences in the nation. It allows students in the theater arts to compete, attend workshops, and audition for scholarships.

The state conference is being held in Upland, California this year. Events usually go until 9:00 p.m. or later and begin early the next morning, staying overnight eliminates late night travel and keeps students at the event instead of on the road traveling back and forth. The conference lasts three days.

Mr. Newman and one other adult will serve as chaperones and will be taking 12 students this year to the state conference. Transportation will be provided via one of Heritage High School's site vans. The cost for registration is $250 per student.
Funding: The cost for this item will be funded partially by Heritage High School's Associated Student Body Drama Club Fund and Student Fundraising.
Recommendation: It is recommended that the Board of Trustees approve the overnight field trip request for Heritage High School theater students to attend the California State Thespian Conference in Upland, California, March 28-30, 2019.
