Arts Integration Focus Schools
Interested in becoming a 2016-17 Arts Integration Focus School?
Schools served by Ingham ISD, surrounding districts and the MSU FCU Institute for Arts & Creativity are eligible to become Arts Integration Focus Schools. Ideally these schools identify a team including: the building administrator, at least one arts specialist/teacher and some number of classroom teachers who engage in professional learning and plan, implement and evaluate arts integrated curriculum, instruction and assessment. The team...
- Engages in professional learning and planning during the Arts Integration Summer Institute;
- Implements their plans throughout the academic year, contributing to and receiving support through an Arts-Integration Professional Learning Community;
- Hosts a teaching artist for a collaborative arts integrated curriculum in classrooms/the school;
- Reports and showcases the results of their effort in an annual report to stakeholders.
Complete and return the 2017-18 Arts Integration Focus School Agreement. This form requires the signatures of your team members and indicates a commitment to full participation - Summer Institute, Professional Learning Communities, Teaching Artist Collaboration, and Reporting. In some cases, if a team cannot be formed, individuals or two parties may attend. For more information, please contact Lonnie Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
