Participants can earn up to 35 Act 45/PIL hours for either program. AEC is one of the only arts-focused providers of Act 45/PIL hours in Pennsylvania.
Since the program began in 2011, 96 administrators in Western PA have graduated from both tracks and put their action plans to work. Our evaluations have shown that participants feel more confident advocating for the arts, prioritizing student creativity, and leveraging cross-curricular connections. Participation is $400 for the first team member and $200 for each additional participant from the same school or district.
All administrators at the building or district level interested in supporting the arts are welcome to apply. Strengthen the role of the arts in learning and infuse schools with creativity with AEC’s CLAE programs.
