WOODBURY - ? A school tragedy on Long Island may change the way city schools handle their field trips.
A girl from Harlem drowned last year while on a field trip to Long Beach when no lifeguards were on duty. The city schools chancellor now says he wants stricter rules for all field trips that may involve swimming. The change would include more chaperones and only swimming with lifeguards present.
A panel will vote on the changes in August.
