Part 4: Understanding Superintendents' Role in Arts Education

Superintendents can play a crucial role in arts education. They propose budgets; provide district wide training (including professional development for teachers and leadership training for principals); hire and empower curriculum directors (including district arts coordinators); and can ensure the arts are included in district planning. This webinar will share a case study about 5 different district leaders, and help you learn the importance of the superintendent position within the field of arts education.

Part 5: Understanding Business Partnerships for Arts Education

Business leaders can be key advocates for arts education. They can champion arts education by offering internships, mobilizing resources, and raising visibility and can also be effective advocates with elected officials because of their role as a driver of the local economy. With this much local clout, you can't afford to pass up partnerships with local businesses. This webinar can help you learn how to move local businesses from single event sponsors to more fully engaged educational stakeholders within your community.

Part 6: Understanding Principals' Role in Arts Education

We may be conditioned to think that going to the Principal's office is a bad thing, but it's high time you paid your local Principals a visit. They are critical partners to ensure better arts education in schools. Principals create a school vision; provide leadership and support, and set schedules, budgets and other priorities which can ensure that the arts get the same attention as other academic subjects. Join this webinar to learn from our expert presenters how you can start or grow your relationship with a school's instructional leader.

Part 7: Understanding Parents' Role in Arts Education

Art education and advocacy starts at home. A parent's strongest role supporting arts education should be as a local advocate. Parents levy expectations onto school boards and their child's principal and teachers, which can translate into a better environment for arts education. This kind of parental advocacy takes the form of votes, public opinion, volunteerism, fundraising and donations. Participate in this webinar to learn from our panel of experts how you can involve parents in your programs.
