    Step 4: Tell us about your group!

    Grade Level (check all that apply)

    Estimated field trip fees will be based on the attendance numbers you provide below. You will only be charged (if applicable), however, on the day of your visit for your actual attendance.

    Your required number of chaperones will be calculated by dividing the number of students by eight (8). These required adults are admitted free. All other adults beyond this ratio will receive a discounted admission rate. NOTE: Teachers are not automatically free. Please review carefully the field trip pricing information in the Field Trip Policies.

    Number of Students
    Number of Teachers
    How many of the above students have IEPs? (Required for grant reporting purposes.)
    How many IEP-mandated 1:1 Assistants will be on the trip?
    Number of Other Adults (not including those above)

    Note that required chaperone slots (i.e., free adults) will be assigned first to teachers and then if applicable to parent chaperones. Adults—whether teachers or parents–beyond the 8:1 chaperone ratio will be considered “extra adults,” and will receive a discounted admission rate.

    Who will be the contact person on the day of your field trip (if different from above)?

    First Name
    Last Name

    How will your group be arriving to the Zoo?
