Arts Partnership for Oklahoma City Public Schools
Arts Council of Oklahoma City
Award Date: October 20, 2018
Responding to large cuts in Oklahoma City Public Schools visual and performing arts staffing that dropped programs in 39 of 54 elementary schools, Arts Council Oklahoma City convened community arts groups to establish shared data, goals and a short-term strategy to serve OKC students with arts education. Collaboratively the Arts Partnership for OKCPS bridges the gap temporarily in 21 OKC elementary schools for the 2018-2019 year by pairing community arts partners with these high poverty, under-served schools.
