Subsidize chaperones for children's chorus trip?
Date: December 20, 2014
My children's chorus is traveling to Austria this summer, and my board is balking at subsidizing the chaperones. There are several parents going on the trip who have explicitly stated that they do not want to chaperone, so I would like to help fund three parents who would be fabulous chaperones but who cannot afford the trip. In my experience with past trips (with other choruses), the chaperones have always been partially subsidized, as they will have many responsibilities, and must be ready to miss some of the sight-seeing/events/etc. if a singer should be ill. I would like to be able to present my board with evidence that subsidizing chaperones is common practice for trips involving children, so please let me know if you have a policy for funding chaperones.
