How EdExplore Works

Step by Step with EdExploreSRQ

We know that your time is valuable. That is why we have made getting started with EdExploreSRQ as easy as possible. Simply use the search and filter functions at the top of every page throughout the EdExploreSRQ site to enter as much information as you know about the type(s) of activities you are seeking (e.g., Month, Grade Level, Subject Area). Based on the information you enter, the EdExploreSRQ database will match your choice(s) with activities offered by local arts, culture and science organizations, as well as area teaching artists, both as in-class activities and field trips. Each listing includes an overview of the program, its cost, how to contact the organizer to reserve space, transportation arrangements, and the Florida Standards the program or activity meets.

If you need assistance funding the program selected, visit the EdExploreSRQ Ways to Fund page to find out information on grants and other types of financial assistance that may be available either through your school or the Sarasota County School district.

Important Note: ALL programs and activities on EdExploreSRQ have been approved by Sarasota County School District staff to meet the Florida Standards listed, so teachers and principals can reserve them with confidence.
