CETA Schools

CETA Schools develop a vision and long-range plan for arts integration at their school, select from various introductory and in-depth professional learning options, and receive technical assistance from more experienced schools and the Kennedy Center. Teachers design their own professional learning programs by selecting from a variety of options, including participatory workshops, in-depth courses, study groups, demonstration teaching, and arts coaching.

Washington, DC metropolitan area schools may apply to become CETA schools if they commit to a multi-year collaboration during which the principal and teams of teachers (both classroom teachers and arts specialists) participate in ongoing professional learning.
