Principal Moss punishes the primary characters for throwing a party in his house without his knowledge by giving them detention on a Saturday. But Principal Moss must be much nicer than he lets on; realistically, they would be arrested and charged with breaking-and-entering, destruction of private property (Miosky eating his goldfish), vandalism, and so on.

I should say that "Senior Trip" is mostly one of the silly comedies that they released in the 1990s (of course, it was intended as such). I guess that on one level, it has an important lesson about paying attention to what happens in the government. In my opinion, the best parts were some of the briefer things: the guy chasing the bus, J. Edgar Hoover's grave*, the porno movie in the hotel room, and the epilogues. Otherwise, this isn't the sort of movie that you'd go out of your way to watch. Although I have to admit, Matt Frewer (who turns 50 today) and Tommy Chong play great characters.
*The student was right: J. Edgar Hoover was a fascist. You may have heard the news that just recently came out that Hoover wanted to round up large numbers of Americans in 1950.
