Community of Learners for Arts Education (CLAE) is a program for school- and district-level administrators. Participants earn Act 48 or Act 45 (PIL) credit for successfully completing the program.

School- and district-level administrators new to the world of arts education should consider applying for the Community of Learners for Arts Education (CLAE) program. CLAE is “Arts Education 101” to help administrators support quality arts learning for their students. Participants dig into research, gather data, and implement an action plan to benefit the students in their districts.

Participants receive 35 Act 45/PIL hours upon completion.

Registration fee: $175 for the first person from a single school or district, and $50 for each additional person from the same school or district

Why focus on the arts? Because strong arts programs foster academic, cognitive, personal, and social and civic outcomes that improve learning across the curriculum.

Apply now! Applications are due by 5 PM ET on Friday, September 8, 2017.

  • I would recommend this program highly to those who want to inspire change guided by research and educated decision-making.

  • The discussion was great and highly applicable to the level of my role in the district.

  • The pacing was excellent, I understood exactly what was expected, and the facilitation allowed for equal sharing and listening. The materials and articles were all relevant, and the entire flow of the program was well-planned.

This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
