Are you interested in participating in the Title 1 Initiative?
The Title 1 Initiative is an effort by the Arts Council to introduce schools to the CAPs program and the benefits of participation. Arts Council staff will work with the school to schedule one low- or no-cost for your students. We are also eager to help you build the infrastructure to sustain the program in the coming years. Participating schools will be required to subscribe to CAPs and form a PTA committee to sustain the program into the future. See requirements below for more information.
The Title 1 Initiative is funded by the foundations, corporations, private individuals, and anonymous supporters. Fundraising for the program is ongoing throughout the year. Interested schools are placed on a waiting list. Once funding for your school is secured, you will work with the Arts Council staff to choose an artist to perform at your school. The goal of the Title 1 Initiative is to reach every student at your school with high-quality arts performances. Funding permitted, you may be able to book two back-to-back shows with an artist so that every student is able to attend the assembly.
