The arts, as a core curricular area, are a meaningful component of the Every Student Succeeds Act. Learn more about the opportunities to include the arts as an important dimension of student learning. This session will help school and district leaders to better understand how a consistent commitment to arts education leads to positive school climate, family and community engagement as well as students’ academic and social-emotional development. This is an opportunity to learn directly from both practitioners and researchers about the impact of arts learning.

The event takes place on Feb. 21 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Foundation for Educational Administration (FEA) Conference Center, 12 Center Drive, Monroe, New Jersey. The program is sponsored by ArtsEDNJ and the New Jersey Principals and Supervisors Association FEA.
