Principals’ Professional Development: Race, School Climate, & the Arts
October 21, 2011 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
How do we meet state standards for teaching the arts if some cultural norms prevent students from participating?
How come the makeup of some parent committees does not match the diversity of our student population?
When these topics came up in the Principals’ Arts Leadership Program last year, we invited Arts Corps to join us to facilitate a workshop and group dialogue about recognizing barriers and providing access for all. ArtsEd Washington is opening this Principals’ Arts Leadership workshop to all principals.
Arts Corps, in addition, to their arts programs and partnerships with dozens of schools, has been exploring the topics of race, equity and the arts, and leading “Courageous Conversations” internally and with groups of educators. We are excited to feature Arts Corps at our fall PAL workshop for this participatory workshop and conversation among school leaders. The objective is to support principals in creating an environment for the full participation of all students and families.
Clock hours available.
