Arts Integration Training (AIT)
Deadline: June 16, 2022
In recent years, the CAC expanded the arts education grant programs, including the Arts Integration Training (AIT) grant. Awards of up to $5,000 per year support nonprofit arts organizations and teaching artists to plan and deliver professional development in arts integration strategies to classroom teachers, as well as site, district, and county-level administrators. Arts Integration Training projects should be designed to pave a pathway for increased equitable student learning in, through, and about the arts. This may be realized in a specific classroom, in all classrooms across a school site, or as a central strategy for a district- or countywide arts plan. The Arts Integration Training project can stand alone or be executed in conjunction with an Artists in Schools project. The project must be planned and implemented with collaboration between a nonprofit arts organization, teaching artists, and the educational entity, with full commitment from all participants.
