The Creative Network pilot 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 in a new Network school program. The schools receive one to four days of arts per week depending on their student enrollment. All grade 3-6 classes receive nine-weeks of discrete arts instruction in dance, music, theatre and visual arts. All K-2 classes receive ten-twelve-weeks of arts integration, connecting and blending instruction in all arts disciplines to various other core curricular areas.
This comprehensive program began in the 2014-2015 school year with 17 schools in the east and 14 schools in the north. There were 10 arts teachers. In 2015-16 the program has expanded to 23 schools in the east and central local districts and to 18 in local districts northeast and northwest. The number of arts teachers has doubled to 20.
