Title 1 Bus Program

This program is to help Title 1 public schools within Sedgwick County visit the Zoo. The program will offer reimbursement of up to $200 per bus to schools for field trip transportation costs.

To receive this funding, Title 1 public schools within Sedgwick County need to complete the following steps:

  1. Call the Zoo (316.266.8213) to register for transportation reimbursement. The school must know how many buses will be needed.
  2. Book a field trip and free education program with the Zoo.
  3. Book the buses for the class through the bussing company.
  4. Enjoy your field trip to the Zoo and participate in the required education program.
  5. Following the field trip, send the receipt for bus transportation to the Zoo no later than June 30, 2020.
  6. The Zoo will confirm the class’s attendance at the Zoo and required education program and reimburse the school for up to $200 per bus.

Registration for transportation reimbursements will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Title 1 schools may ask for more than one reimbursement in the school year. All requests for reimbursement for trips during the 2019-2020 academic year must be made by June 30, 2020; late requests will not be honored.

Transportation reimbursement is not available for the Party for the Planet Earth Day Celebration or Fifth Grade Fire Prevention Day.
