School leaders play a pivotal role in ensuring achievement is part of the school culture. In this course, participants will assume a leadership role as they investigate the power visual arts have to increase academic capacity beyond the art room and across the entire district. They will explore integrations in literacy, math, science, and other core areas. Finally, participants will translate their learning into a leadership improvement plan, benefiting learners both inside and outside the art room walls.
