Field Trips For Students
Act One partners with Title 1 schools in Maricopa and Pima counties that have limited educational arts field trip opportunities. Act One coordinates the field trips with educators/schools/districts and the arts organizations, handling reservations and paying admission costs to the arts venues; coordinating and paying for transportation via district buses or contracted services; providing teaching materials to help prepare for the field trip; and providing books when they complement the field trip. Schools are responsible for a $1 program partnership fee per participant.
In the 2016-2017 school year, Act One has capacity to bring more than 30,000 K-12 grade students from Title 1 schools on educational arts field trips in the Phoenix area and Tucson.

2. Fill out the online field trip request form by clicking the black Field Trip Registration Form button below.
3. Act One will contact you with details about your field trip. We coordinate reservations and details with the arts organization, pay the admission cost for your field trip, reimburse district bus expenses and send teaching materials to help you prepare students for the field trip. If your school does not have buses, Act One can schedule transportation.
4. Your school is responsible for preparing students for the field trip, securing permission slips (per your district’s guidelines), reserving district buses and ensuring that students get on the bus. Additionally, schools are responsible for a $1 program partnership fee per field trip participant.
