The Nanaimo School Board has placed a two-year moratorium on all field trips outside of North America.
Trustees voted on the matter at a special board meeting on Wednesday night.
The move comes after students and chaperones from the Nanaimo area were caught up in a deadly terrorist attack in Nice, France.
A truck drove into crowds of people celebrating Bastille Day, July 14th, killing 84 people and injuring many more.
No one in the Nanaimo group was injured but the School Board decided to cut the trip short and bring home 85 students and 12 chaperones prompting criticism from some parents.
At the time, the school district said it had been a difficult decision based on advice from the district’s violence threat assessment team, the Ministry of Education and the Canadian Centre for Threat Assessment.
It was adopted by a vote of 5-3.
The moratorium will see the cancellation of a student trip to France planned for next April to take part in events marking the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge.
