TAEA District of Distinction
Grand Prairie ISD is pleased to announce that we will be named a Texas Art Education Association District of Distinction. Over 1,000 districts were eligible to apply for this TAEA Visual Arts Award and just forty-two districts will receive this outstanding honor this year. The TAEA Administration and Supervision Division recognizes districts with outstanding leadership in promoting the arts in their district and community.
The GPISD visual arts program met or exceeded a rigorous 12-point rubric. The rubric examines a district’s visual art program through exhibitions, contests, community engagement in the visual arts through field experiences, community service, and collaboration with other content areas. TAEA noted the level of participation in visual art learning experiences at all GPISD grade levels despite the many educational challenges faced this past spring.
