CLAE: Building a Blueprint

CLAE: Building a Blueprint is a program for administrators looking to hire and retain excellent arts educators. Participants receive Act 45/PIL credit upon successful completion of the program.

Applications for CLAE: Building a Blueprint are now closed. Please check back in spring 2020 for more information.

School- and district-level administrators ready to make system-wide change are invited to apply for AEC’s newest offering. This program focuses on an administrator’s role in hiring new arts teachers, supporting them through induction, and providing them with resources and purposeful feedback to improve teaching and learning.

During the program, participants will work in teams to create blueprints for arts education in their schools or districts. These blueprints include job descriptions, interview protocols, model lesson parameters, and characteristics and examples of arts SLOs, among other resources.

This program expands on the focus of CLAE: Fundamentals and provides participants with an opportunity to create a comprehensive arts blueprint for their district; however, participation in CLAE: Fundamentals is not a prerequisite.

Participants will receive up to 36 Act 45/PIL hours upon completion. There is a registration fee of $400 from the first person from a school or district, and $200 for each additional person from the same school or district.
