Fulton County Schools (FCS) has developed its Bridge to Success plan to help students recover from learning loss due to the pandemic. Cultural Kaleidoscope is a component of the Expanded Programs option of that Bridge plan.
The vision of the program is to provide every FCS student with enriched, educational learning beyond the classroom through field trips offering authentic experiences, cultural exposure, and building background knowledge and vocabulary.
Supporting the Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE), the field trips will begin this fall. Each grade level from Pre-K through 8th grade will participate in an experience at a specific venue. High school students will participate in teacher-selected trips. Logistics will be handled through the Cultural Kaleidoscope team at the Teaching Museum. Admission and transportation costs will be covered through the Bridge to Success funding.
