Learning in Action: Student Transportation Funding to Visit Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park
This year, Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park has received school transportation funding in order for students to visit THEIR local national park.
Any Title I school can apply for bus transportation funds. However, students visiting the park using these funds must participate in a ranger-guided program.
Once the park receives and approves your request for transportation funding, it will be sent to a local bus company. This company will arrive at your school to bring your students to the park and will take your students back to school. Since we are working with an outside company, please make the necessary arrangements 2 weeks prior to your anticipated visit. If we do not receive this form within this time-frame, it may hinder the possibilities to receive transportation assistance.
Once the form is complete, please scan and email to email@example.com or fax to 706-866-7981.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call Park Ranger Christopher Young at 423-752-5213 x117.
