Chaperones can enhance the success of a group tour and the amount of learning that can take place by showing active interest in the works of art while supervising student behavior. When students see adults interested and engaged, they are more likely to respond themselves. We also ask chaperones to observe the following guidelines:
- Please stay with your assigned group at all times, including during and after the tour. All students in grades Pre-K through 12 must remain with their assigned chaperone at all times.
- During the tour, please stay actively engaged and refrain from side conversations, as they may distract the students.
- Please silence your cell phone during your visit.
- It is the responsibility of each chaperone to review the visit guidelines above, to communicate the rules to his or her group, and to enforce the rules while at Albright-Knox Northland. If student behavior is found to be disruptive, the Albright-Knox reserves the right to ask the group to sit out the rest of the tour.
- Chaperones are not permitted to bring additional children on guided school tours. This includes the use of strollers and front baby carriers.
