A $16,000 trip by seven Fairfield-Suisun School District teachers and four administrators to attend a convention at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas won approval Thursday by the school board.
The national convention of No Excuses University, a program that emphasizes every student has the right to be educated in a way that prepares them for college, will take place Oct. 22-25.
Conference registration totals $3,500. Hotel costs are $5,300. Travel costs $7,200.
A Fairfield-Suisun School District staff report to trustees said as part of the No Excuses University network, participating schools must attend the annual convention at least once every two school years.
