CoTA’s three-year partnerships with San Diego elementary schools provide sustained arts-integrated professional development for the entire faculty.

Over the course of three years, teachers receive approximately 60 hours of one-to-one training with highly qualified teaching artists at their school sites. By the end of the third year, teachers are skillful and purposeful in enlisting the visual and performing arts as a mode of meaning making and communication.

Collaborations include:

  • One-on-one curriculum planning time with artists
    (approximately five hours per year)
  • Co-teaching of lessons in the classroom
    (ten 60-minute sessions per year)
  • Exploratory workshops
    (four to six hours per year)
  • Opportunities for students to demonstrate their learning in exhibitions and performances
  • Opportunities for teachers to share their work with colleagues
