Bus Reimbursement

You must be an active ZooEd Teacher prior to your field trip in order to be eligible for reimbursement. 

  • Active participation requirements for this school year:

    • You are trained in the level of curriculum you are using

    • Your materials have been ordered and picked up before the date of your field trip ​​​​

      • For the 2023-2024 school year, orders must be placed by March 31st. 

      • For Manage and Maintain teachers using digital student guides in their classroom, please still submit an order for our records.​ Manage teachers will still be asked to pick up diorama boxes so students may complete the final project.

    • You are using your materials!

  • You have up to 30 days after your field trip to request reimbursement to aid in the cost of bus transportation. An attached invoice from your bus transport service will be required at the time of submission.

  • You may be reimbursed up to $250 per bus. This can be applied only for the transport of students who are currently participating in ZooED. Please do not include additional non-ZooED classes who are accompanying you in your reimbursement request.

  • Only ONE teacher needs to fill out a request form for your group, but please include ALL ZooED teachers names on the form.

  • *Filling out a bus reimbursement form does NOT guarantee that your request will be granted. You will be notified if there are any issues with your request.*

Before submitting your bus reimbursement form, make sure you have completed the following steps:

1. Reviewed our policies about active teacher status. If you have any questions about your status please  email: zooed@fotzkc.org

2. Be ready to attach your bus transportation invoice. You will not be able to request reimbursement without an invoice from your bus transportation service.

3. Submit your form no later than 30 days after the date of your field trip.

4. Once submitted, allow three weeks for your request to be processed.

What If I'm Considered Inactive?


Inactive teachers may still receive ZooED curriculum materials, a free Zoomobile program, and free field trip admission! You are just ineligible for a bus stipend for that school year.
