Daytona State College has a number of procedures related to travel. They outline requirements for the approval of in-district, out-of-district, and out-of-country travel, field trips with students, and reimbursement.
It is every employee’s responsibility to become familiar with and comply with all travel procedures. Discuss your plans with your Department Chair or supervisor prior to traveling.
