School- and district-level administrators new to the world of arts education should consider applying for the Community of Learners for Arts Education (CLAE): Fundamentals program. CLAE: Fundamentals aids administrators in supporting quality arts learning for their students. Participants dig into research, gather data, and implement an action plan to benefit the students in their districts.
Participants receive 35 Act 45/PIL hours upon completion.
Registration fee: $350 for the first person from a single school or district, and $175 for each additional person from the same school or district. The next cohort of CLAE: Fundamentals will meet on October 3, November 30, February 19, and May 9 at venues throughout the Pittsburgh area.
Why focus on the arts? Because strong arts programs foster academic, cognitive, personal, and social and civic outcomes that improve learning across the curriculum.
Applications are due by September 7, 2018. Contact Jamie Kasper for more information.
