School- and district-level administrators ready to make system-wide change are invited to apply for AEC’s newest offering. This program focuses on an administrator’s role in hiring new arts teachers, supporting them through induction, and providing them with resources and purposeful feedback to improve teaching and learning.
During the program, participants will work in teams to create blueprints for arts education in their schools or districts. These blueprints include job descriptions, interview protocols, model lesson parameters, and characteristics and examples of arts SLOs, among other resources.
This program expands on the focus of CLAE: Fundamentals and provides participants with an opportunity to create a comprehensive arts blueprint for their district; however, participation in CLAE: Fundamentals is not a prerequisite.
Participants receive 36 Act 45/PIL hours upon completion.
There is a registration fee of $400 from the first person from a school or district, and $200 for each additional person from the same school or district. The next cohort of CLAE: Building a Blueprint will meet on October 1, November 14, January 24, and March 14 at venues throughout the Pittsburgh area.
Applications are due by September 7, 2018. Contact Jamie Kasper for more information.
