Who Should Attend: Principals, Supervisors and Teachers of the Arts, Curriculum Directors, Superintendents, School Business Administrators, Title I Administrators. How can we improve educational outcomes for low-income students who are often underserved in public schools? This is the challenge of Title I. Schools and districts receiving Title I funds are charged with using these additional resources to supplement students’ regular education programs. Arts education can be an asset to schools and districts in achieving these goals. Studies find that integrating the arts with instruction in other academic subjects increases student learning and achievement and helps teachers more effectively meet the needs of all students. Other studies find that both integrated and non-integrated forms of arts education help to transform the learning environment in schools by fostering student engagement, attendance, and motivation to learn, and improving school culture and climate. These outcomes are leading indicators of student achievement. They are also key ingredients for turning around low-performing schools.
