Arts Ed Collaborative has helped numerous school districts update or rewrite arts curricula. We’re committed to a flexible, standards-based curriculum model and have helped districts throughout Southwestern Pennsylvania shape innovative dance, music, health and physical education, and visual art curricula that engage students and empower teachers.
During the 2019–20 school year, we worked with Peters Township School District on a visual arts curriculum, West Allegheny SD on a music curriculum, Pittsburgh Public Schools and West Jefferson Hills SD on both music and visual arts, and Franklin Regional SD on a new performing arts curriculum. Arts Ed Collaborative uses the National Core Arts Standards as a springboard for helping districts create curriculum documents that are relevant and student-centered. We continue to think about ways we can adapt our processes to our region’s diverse school systems.
