New Program Offerings
The Iowa Alliance for Arts Education Model of Excellence Mentoring Program continues to expand its offerings and impact. Most recently, the program now offers four full-day in-person visits, unlimited virtual mentor visits, and a $500 scholarship for professional conference attendance and payment of professional organization dues.
- IAAE will cover the cost of subscription fees/purchase price for digital content used for either in-person, hybrid, or virtual instruction. This content can be used for improvement of the beginning teacher’s teaching skills or classroom instruction.
- IAAE will compensate school districts for the cost of virtual master classes on fine arts instruction. The presenters of the master class will be compensated at a rate of $100 per presentation/clinic. Since the funds for this program are appropriated by the Iowa legislature, we are asking that the master class presenters are Iowa residents.
- As school districts are beginning to allow outside visitors, the mentor grant will also cover the costs of in-person master classes, presentations and clinics compensated at a rate of $100 per presentation/clinic.
