We have also developed an Arts Strategy that is an important step in achieving a more coordinated and focused approach to improved arts programming and services for our students.
The Arts Strategy focuses on:
- All students having equitable access to a balanced and comprehensive arts education, based on the Ontario Arts Curriculum (K-12), that develops their critical and creative thinking, collaboration and communication skills.
- HWDSB supporting the professional learning and capacity building of educators in the arts through rich educational experiences that enhance achievement, engagement and equity for all students.
- HWDSB collaborating with parents, school communities and partners to provide support and celebrate meaningful arts experiences for all students to appreciate the value of the visual and performance arts for and by others.
