The arts nurture a motivation to learn by emphasizing active engagement, disciplined and sustained attention, persistence and risk taking, among other competencies. Participation in the arts also is an important strategy for engaging and motivating students at risk of dropping out of high school and for those with special needs. (NASAA)

HOW IT WORKS
With the Arts4All subsidy program, teachers may apply for a reduction in ticket cost based on their school's percentage of students who qualify for free or reduced lunch (FRL). For example, if 50% of the students in your school qualify for free and reduced lunch, then your school may apply for up to a 50% discount on the price of tickets and a 50% reimbursement for transportation (transportation subsidies are limited and are not guaranteed). Schools must have at least 35% FRL and a minimum of 10 students attending in order to be eligible.Applications will be reviewed by a panel of educators and staff members. Award assistance will be distributed until all the funds are depleted. Applications for both the fall and spring semesters will be accepted by the deadline. The application must be completely filled out and signed by the appropriate parties to be eligible for review. Please submit one application per performance.Teachers must have made preliminary reservations for the 2019-2020 season prior to submitting the application. Each grade level per school may apply for up to two (2) performances.
