Florida Arts Model Schools (FAMS)

The Florida Department of Education (FDOE) supports a complete and comprehensive education that includes dance, music, theatre and visual arts for all Florida students. To help achieve this goal, the Florida Department of Education in partnership with the Florida Alliance for Arts Education (FAAE) seeks to identify strong arts education programs in schools throughout Florida. The new Florida Arts Model Schools (FAMS) program recognizes schools that offer exemplary programs in any of the four arts disciplines and partners them with rural/underserved schools desiring to either enhance an emerging arts program or implement a new arts program. Schools can apply for FAMS recognition in one or more arts areas. In addition, the designation of Florida Arts Achievement Model School will be given to secondary schools receiving FAMS designations in all four arts areas and elementary schools receiving FAMS designations in at least three out of the four arts areas.

Instructional Design Training for ESE Arts Teachers

The Instructional Design Training for ESE Arts Teachers program trains certified arts educators to design and use interactive modules to differentiate instruction and improve access to quality arts education for ESE students.  Teachers use comprehensive and user-friendly educational software to design technology-based learning and/or assessment tools for use in their content areas.  Participants develop at least one product for immediate classroom use that teaches and/or assesses the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards in arts courses to ESE students in mainstreamed or self-contained ESE arts classrooms.

National Artist Teacher Fellowship Program

The Center for Arts in Education invites arts teachers from public, magnet or charter arts high schools and Title 1 high schools and middle schools to apply for funding for artistic development through its National Artist Teacher Fellowship (NATF) program, formerly known as the Surdna Arts Teachers Fellowship (SATF). The program offers arts teachers the opportunity to immerse themselves in their own creative work, interact with other professional artists, and stay current with new practices. 

The purpose of this fellowship is to expand the applicant’s artistic range and abilities in the making of art.

Applicants must be a) permanently assigned full or part-time faculty and be minimally in their fifth year of teaching arts in a public, magnet or charter arts high school. Or b) Title 1 school teachers who are in their fifth year of teaching at a public middle or high school with a commitment to the arts. The following arts disciplines are eligible: Visual Arts, Theatre, Music, Dance, Film, Creative Writing, Architecture, Design, Multi-Media and Multi-Disciplinary Arts.
