The Creative Network
The Creative Network program shatters the traditional arts education model by using innovation to empower arts resources that create consistent, full scale, equitable arts education opportunities for every student. Each Creative Network school receives one to five days of arts per week depending on their student enrollment. All grades K-6 receive nine-weeks of discrete arts instruction in dance, music, theatre and visual arts.
This comprehensive program began in the 2014-15 school year with 17 schools in Local District (LD) East and 14 schools in LD North, and 10 arts teachers. In 2015-16 the program expanded to 23 schools in the LD East and LD Central and to 18 in LD Northwest and Northeast and the number of arts teachers doubled to 20. In the spring of 2016, a comprehensive assessment in the arts was given to all students in grades 3 and above. The results showed that the majority of the students were retaining the information taught. In the fall of 2017, the Creative Network was expanded to serve schools in LD South, with 30 teachers serving 53 schools District-wide.
The Creative Network has now grown to service schools in all Local Districts, with 60 teachers in 87 schools District-wide!
