  • Who can use ZooED?
    ZooED is free and accessible for all students in the Zoological District. This includes public, private, parochial, charter and home schools and other educational organizations in Jackson or Clay counties. At this time, ZooED curriculum is not available to groups outside the Zoological District.
  • How do I order ZooED materials?
    Once you complete your teacher training, you will have access to our private Teacher Portal where there is a form link to order your materials. Returning teachers should already have access to the Teacher Portal. If you have misplaced the Teacher Portal password, contact zooed; zooed@fotzkc.org.
  • Where do I pick up my order and how long do I have to do so?
    Orders can be picked up at the Zoo's Education office located in the building to the right of the Zoo's main entrance. Our building is open Monday-Friday, 8:30am to 5:00pm. If you would like to pick up on a Saturday or Sunday, let us know the Thursday prior and we will place your materials at Guest Relations. You will receive an email when your materials are ready to be picked up. We ask that teachers pick up their materials within three weeks of receiving a confirmation email that it has been filled. As a courtesy, we will send a final pick up notice email and if materials are not picked up by the date provided they will be returned back into our inventory. We recognize that unforseen circumstances can arise, if you need an extension please let us know.
  • How do I signup for a teacher training?
    Teaching training information and dates can be found on our New Teacher Information page.
  • If one of us in a group of teachers is ZooED trained, can we all get materials and the bus reimbursement?
    We ask that each individual teacher be trained in the ZooED curriculum. For this reason, we do not permit teachers to order materials or request bus stipends for an untrained teacher. Bus reimbursements can only be applied to students participating in ZooED.
  • How do I know if I'm eligible for a bus reimbursement?
    Teachers who are considered "active" are eligible to receive bus reimbursement to help cover the cost of field trip transportation to the Zoo. Active participation requirements and bus reimbursement forms can be found by logging into the Teacher Portal. Still unsure if you have met the requirements? Contact us by email, zooed@fotzkc.org, for more info.
  • How do I schedule my ZooED Zoomoblie or Field Trip?
    ZooED does not oversee scheduling for Zoomobiles or Field Trips. Please visit the Zoomobile & Field Trip page for request form links.
