About the Baltimore Arts Education Initiative

Baltimore City Public Schools District in partnership with Arts Every Day is pleased to announce the Baltimore Arts Education Initiative, a collaborative Fine Arts Strategic Planning process to ensure equity and access to arts education for all Baltimore City Public School students. The Baltimore Arts Education Initiative (BAEI) is a 2017 recipient of a $50,000 National Endowment for the Arts Art Works: Collective Impact grant.

In partnership with Baltimore City Public Schools, Arts Every Day will convene students, parents, community partners, arts educators, arts organizations, and district stakeholders to create a Strategic Plan to move the Baltimore City Public School District forward in 1) meeting new Maryland State Department of Education Fine Arts Standards and Regulations, 2) equipping school leaders and educators with a roadmap for building arts rich schools, 3) defining guidelines for quality school and community partnerships, out-of-school time and summer arts programming. The planning process will take place over the 2017-18 School Year.
