Resources for Schools & Partners

Professional Development from CA Partners

Learning how to integrate the arts into your classroom can increase student engagement, long-term retention and development of 21st century skills like collaboration and perseverance. Also, arts PD is always interactive and creative!

The PD Opportunities listed below are all offered by Creative Advantage Roster partners, so schools can use their Creative Advantage funds to register for them. To do this, check with your arts team and make sure that the PD aligns with your school arts plan. Then to register, find out if they take purchase orders (POs). If they do, then your school admin secretary can request a PO through B2B. If the provider takes checks instead, then use the District Check Request form.
