NOTE: Select only the dates that align with your school's schedule. The DC Collaborative team will be assigning field-trips and will book transportation if you are awarded the trip in the lottery. If you are not awarded the trip, your request will be added to the waiting list.
Reminder: This form serves as a request and does not guarantee a reservation. The Collaborative is implementing a lottery based system and will assign trips equitably based on a random lottery assignment.
