  • Enroll in ArtsEd Washington’s Principals Arts Leadership (PAL) program for Fall 2012!

    We invite you to join with elementary school principals from around the region who are committed to empowering their schools with the creative foundations of learning – pivotal to delivering a complete education to every student.

    With approximately 63 percent of principals noting their dissatisfaction with the quantity of arts education in their schools*, ArtsEd Washington is delivering tools and resources that are enabling elementary school principals to directly lead their schools arts efforts and impact change in arts learning opportunities for their students.

    “As they develop into arts leaders, PAL participants are emerging as stronger, more dedicated, more effective principals. And, because the PAL model emphasizes shared leadership, these principals are building programs of success that can be sustained for years to come.”  -Gary Kipp, Executive Director, Association of Washington School Principals

    ArtsEd Washington’s PAL program is designed to increase schools’ overall capacity to teach arts to all students.  It is an opportunity for elementary school principals to participate in a nationally recognized, three-year arts leadership program and receive hands-on support and coaching from program mentors who have previously completed the program.


    PAL has been carefully designed to guide, support, and provide the foundation for successful integration of school arts programming through the following elements:

    • Establishing a School Arts Team** consisting of teachers, parents, and community members
    • Guiding principals and their teams through a comprehensive visioning process, goal setting, and creation of a school Arts Plan and timeline
    • Supporting implementation of the school Arts Plan
    • Implementing strategies to sustain arts education initiatives and shared dynamic leadership at the building level

    As program slots fill quickly, early registration is strongly encouraged.  Complete the online application to register your interest.

    Please contact Bruce Hall, ArtsEd Washington’s Director of Programs, at programs@artsedwashington.org.

    Read and share our PAL brochure.
