    • ArtsEd WA Part of Arts Vision for Seattle Public Schools 2013: ArtsEd Washington was at the heart of the action as Executive Director Una McAlinden facilitated the creation of a concrete and specific arts vision for the Seattle Public Schools Central Pathway (the K-12 schools in the Washington Middle School service area). Principals from all the schools within this pathway came together with parents and teachers under the leadership of their Executive Director of Schools, Nancy Coogan, committed to improving the provision of arts learning for the students they serve. The team used a racial equity lens to examine arts access data for their pathway as a whole, considered the key components of a high quality arts program, and participated in arts learninSup. Banda SPSg. Given the recent shift from school choice to neighborhood schools in Seattle, this was the first time that the leaders from a K-12 pathway have planned the provision of a continuum of learning together, and it also marked the launch of the SPS districtwide K-12 Arts Plan. Superintendent Banda (pictured) joined the group to celebrate the vision and spoke passionately in support of the social justice which requires that this work continues. Congratulations to these leaders for all their work!
