In conjunction with the release of the arts education report by the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities (PCAH), the work of ArtsEd Washington was highlighted in a national guide, What School Leaders Can Do to Increase Arts Education, just released by the Arts Education Partnership. The guide, prepared with support from PCAH, is directed to school principals and provides an overview of actions they can take to increase arts education in their schools.

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.Key Features of the PAL program (667.2 KiB) Learn More →
