Arts Education: Part of the Solution for Achieving Title I Goals

This session will provide resources – from research evidence clearinghouses and other online tools for navigating State and local Title I compliance requirements to promising practices in arts integration curriculum and instructional strategies – for district- and school-level Title I leaders and teachers.
