arts and education schools & districts
http://www.coloarts.state.co.us/programs/education/schools_districts/i...

Program Overview One of CCA’s goals is to “Expand access to quality arts education for young people” by promoting and supporting arts learning for youth, including formal training in the arts as well as arts infused into other disciplines or fields. Nationally evaluated school-based arts learning programs are showing impact on both the academic growth and the social and behavioral improvement of students. Research shows quantifiable improvements in student achievement, as well as increased parent and community involvement and support. There is also universal recognition that access to the arts is important for keeping kids engaged and motivated in school, particularly with at-risk and disengaged students. By supporting schools in planning and implementing 'arts rich' environments, the Colorado Council on the Arts will be a catalyst for meaningful collaboration among Colorado K-12 public schools and districts, artists, and arts/cultural organizations, resulting in opportunities for increased student engagement and improvements in academic achievement and behavioral development for all Colorado students. In this, the inaugural year of the StART Schools grants, CCA’s intent is to help establish a core of pilot schools and districts that will define, plan and implement arts education programs that are specifically aligned with their school or district learning goals. These model programs that include the arts as a vital component of education reform will become a network that can help share promising practices and support one another through CCA assistance. As in CCA’s other grant programs, grant requests are reviewed in a competitive process by peer panelists who make funding recommendations to the Council. In addition to addressing the Council’s arts education goal, applicants must demonstrate: Artistic excellence and merit of proposed activities; Community involvement and benefit from proposed activities; and Implementation capacity, such as effective planning, management, and budgeting of the project.
