How long do I need to keep troop paperwork? In general we have been told by our Council that the statute of limitations on keeping paperwork (e.g., permission slips) is 3 years.
- Field trip guidelines. Laura Chandler's teaching website has a great Field Trip Guideline for each "student" and parent to sign stating the rules of the road.
- Parent Handbook. This is a great resource to pass out to parents so that they know what is expected of them. (I particularly like the Girl Scout Parent's Law, "A Girl Scout Parent does not consider the leader a babysitter.")
