Campus/Student Visits to the OLC

                            Campus/Student Visits to the OLC Reservation Information

Reservations:

Reservations can be made online through Eduphoria. We encourage you to check with your campus leadership and discuss with your grade level teams on when it is the best day for you to come to the OLC. 

PRIORITY CLASS VISITS:

These are the priority grades the OLC is requesting to reserve an experience:

          • Elementary levels:  Kindergarten,1st, 4th and 5th grades
          • Secondary level:  7th and 8th grade sciences, APES and Environmental Systems

What does this mean?  It means the OLC will pay for bus transportation for each of these grade levels. For a one-day visit. No longer are we doing 2 – 3 day experiences.
