    • Key Features of the PAL program

      The purpose of ArtsEd Washington’s Principals’ Arts Leadership (PAL) program is to increase the provision of high quality arts instruction in Washington State’s educational system. PAL’s goal is to build and support systemic change in public elementary schools so that all students can benefit from the proven and powerful role of arts learning in a complete education. The strategy for accomplishing this – and the linchpin of the PAL program – is to frame the school principal as the instructional leader in the arts. PAL is focused on creating change by guiding principals, teachers, schools, and districts as they grow and sustain arts instruction as an integral component of elementary school education.
