Fall is finally here, and the robust school tour schedule at the Carlos Museum is in full swing. Thanks to your contribution to the summer bus funding initiative, the number of schools who have applied and received a stipend for transportation has increased. As of mid-October, 11 schools (1,334 students) had already applied. Many other schools have contacted the museum and are working on scheduling a tour in the coming months.
These schools come from around the state and as far away as Houston County in Middle Georgia.
Fulton County school teacher Christopher Sandlin confirmed that bus funding made a difference for his school: “Being a Title I school we have a limited budget to use toward buses for field trips, and [this bus funding] was definitely a deciding factor in coming to tour the Carlos.”
Thank you again for supporting this important endeavor to give students the opportunity to take a field trip to the Carlos Museum.
