Introducing a new fund to bring Wake County students to area arts and cultural destinations!
New for the 2016-17 school year, United Arts Council is pleased to announce Wheels on the Bus, which provides funds to move one grade level per school per year at Title I Wake County elementary schools for field trips to area arts and cultural destinations. These Title I schools are targeted because they have student populations with 40-80 percent of student bodies receiving free or reduced lunch assistance.
Schools must choose their field trip destination from a list of available options. The fund will cover transportation costs for the field trip and may help defray entrance costs (if any), on a limited basis. Field trips must take place during the school day. Schools may submit one application per school year.
