Outstanding Visual Arts Community for 2020
We are extremely pleased to announce that the New Hope-Solebury School District has been endorsed by the Pennsylvania Art Education Association as an Outstanding Visual Arts Community for 2020. Our school district is one out of 26 school districts in Pennsylvania that were awarded this unique recognition. In order for a school district to be recognized for this honor, it must meet three criteria which include:
- Rigorous and Inclusive Art Programs which are defined as art programs with demonstrated rigor using standards-based curriculum taught at every level by highly qualified and certified art educators.
- Highly Accessible Programs which are defined as art programs which are offered to all students at every level of education with a sustainable budget for the visual arts.
- Highly Visible Programs which are defined as schools and districts which identified their programmatic accomplishments, curriculum for all levels, art staff, mission statements, and arts events using their school websites and social media.
We are very proud of our art department, students, faculty and staff who continue to make the arts a critical component of our school district programming to provide our students with a well rounded education. Our school district is excited to continue our long tradition of supporting the arts in education.
