EdExploreSRQ.com is an online resource that supports the needs of K-12 teachers in Sarasota County by providing centralized access to unique arts and cultural "Explorations," such as field trips and classroom resources, and curricular support offered by area arts, science and history organizations for students.
These Explorations align to state instructional standards, thereby ensuring that the programs help students learn the content they are expected to master during the school year. The website allows teachers to search for explorations by criteria such as grade level, subject matter or benchmarks, and to find possible sources of funding for student participation.
It was created in partnership with Sarasota County Schools, Arts and Cultural Alliance of Sarasota County, Science and Environment Council, and The Patterson Foundation. There is a new Endowment Challenge partnership created in 2013 with the Community Foundation of Sarasota County.
