• EFA Presents!          

    Explore the wonderful works of art available on the 2020-2021 EFA Rep at www.efa-rep.org.

    Featuring artists from Australia to Uganda and South Korea to Ireland, EFA Presents! provides schools with easy access to performances and visual arts exhibitions from around the world. These acclaimed works of art are available to schools at little to no cost, depending on student grade level and the individual work of art. EFA includes an education guide for teachers and a partial K-8 bus rebate to assist with field trip transportation.    

    Elementary and Middle Schools | Free Admission Credit

    In May 2007, the superintendents of the ten school districts approved the EFA Presents! Admission Credit in recognition of the importance of maintaining access to high-quality arts education programming during difficult economic times. The exciting initiative provides free admission to select works of art for K-8 students.

    Each elementary and middle school receives one admission credit per enrolled K-8 student. The admission credits may be redeemed for free admission to any combination of works of art available on the EFA Rep. One student attending a work of art equals the use of one admission credit unless otherwise noted.

    If a school uses all of its credits for the school year, but wants to attend additional works of art, it may purchase extra admissions at a cost of only $2.00 per student for field trips. Schools electing to purchase additional admissions will receive an invoice from the Kalamazoo RESA Business Office in June for the amount due.  

    In addition, EFA provides a bus transportation rebate to assist with transportation expenses for K-8 students.

    High Schools | $2.00 Admission Fee 

    High schools may purchase admission for students in grades 9-12 at a heavily subsidized rate. Admission costs $2.00 per student for most field trips or $100.00 per school for the traveling exhibition. The Kalamazoo Institute of Arts offers docent-guided tours of their exhibitions free-of-charge to school groups. Schools electing to purchase admissions will receive an invoice from the Kalamazoo RESA Business Office in June for the amount due.
