Active Participation

Active participation in ZooED comes with a very special perk for teachers: bus stipend eligibility to help cover cost of transportation for Zoo field trips! To qualify, teachers are asked to fulfill a couple of requirements which ultimately support the continued improvement of the ZooED program for years to come.

These requirements include: 

  • Completion of ZooED training (one time only per program)

  • Material order by March 1st of the active school year (order forms close March 2nd for the active school year and reopen in May for summer school.) 

  • Samples of student work

Where are my Surveys? 

Surveys are no longer a requirement for ZooED active participate.  Please feel free to continue to send us your feedback by emailing.  

How do I request a bus stipend? 

When you book your field trip, make sure to inform our reservations staff that you are a ZooED teacher. Our reservations team will check your participation status and send you the bus stipend form to be filled out. This form is due before or on the day of your field trip for reimbursement. Late stipend submissions will not be accepted.

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.
