Local artists and arts organizations in Austin are vital in helping Austin ISD move from being arts-involved to being an arts-rich school district.

Through the Creative Learning Initiative, each participating school receives funding to provide students with an in-school or out-of-school arts-based experience from a community arts partner.

For 2017-18 school year, the following vertical teams will have access to the CLI Community Arts Partnership Fund:

 

  • Eastside Memorial Vertical Team (CLI Year 3)
    • $8/student (PK-8)
    • $4/student (9-12)
  • LBJ Vertical Team (CLI Year 2)
    • $8/student (PK-8)
    • $4/student (9-12)
  • Anderson Vertical Team (CLI Year 1)
    • $8/student (PK-8)
    • $4/student (9-12)
  • McCallum Vertical Team (CLI Sustaining)
    • $3/student (PK-5)
    • $3/student (6-12)
  • Travis Vertical Team (CLI Sustaining)
    • $3/student (PK-5)
    • $3/student (6-12)
  • Crockett Vertical Team (CLI Sustaining)
    • $3/student (PK-5)
    • $3/student (6-12)

IMPORTANT NOTE: Of the $8/student, at least $4 must be spent through a community arts partner (e.g., ZACH Theatre, Creative Action, Ballet Austin, Pollyanna Theatre, FilmKids, Ballet Folklorico, The Contemporary, etc.). Any remaining funds may be spent on the necessary supplies to fulfill the arts-based experience (e.g., transportation, art supplies for the community arts partner experience, etc. THESE FUNDS CANNOT BE USED TO STOCK CLASSROOM ARTS SUPPLIES.)
