The Administrator Arts Workshop is designed for Principals and District Office Leaders, and is hosted by the DEED, in partnership with the Alaska Arts Education Consortium and the Bering Strait School District.
Priority will be given to administrators of schools on the DEED Comprehensive Support and Improvement list.
This one-day session, right before the Alaska Principals’ Conference, addresses a common need to improve student engagement with learning that leads to positive outcomes, in alignment with school improvement efforts. It is designed to increase local impact by arming administrators with effective strategies to meet their needs, interests and experience levels in order to amplify learning in and through the arts.
The annual AAEC Champions of Arts in Education Award honors individuals and organizations from around the state, whose efforts in teaching and supporting the arts across the curriculum ensure that all of Alaska’s students learn in and through the arts. This year’s honorees are Claire Scott, Linnus Danner, Sharon Clavette, and Angie Chervenak.
Every year AAEC solicits nominations from across Alaska to honor ‘Alaska’s Champions of Arts in Education’ in four categories. There were many nominees this year and they are all worthy, but there are only four categories. This year’s honorees are Ginger Crockett, Sally Grimsrud, Lake Argus Siner, and Miah Lager.
