In past years 8th graders participated in a trip to visit key historic sites along the eastern seaboard of the United States. Currently San Diego Unified School District is reviewing its practices regarding out-of-state field trips to ensure compliance with California Education Code Section 35300 which states that no pupil shall be prevented from participating in a field trip due to lack of funds. As a result of this, the East Coast Expedition is no longer a school-sponsored activity. Private individuals have discussed organizing a similar type of trip which will take place outside school hours. If you are interested is organizing/being a part of this type of event, contact information is available here. This trip is not sponsored, endorsed nor supported by Grant K-8 School.
