Professional Development for Arts Educators (PDAE) and National Professional Development (NPD)

Professional Development for Arts Educators (PDAE) and National Professional Development (NPD)

PDAE is designed to enrich academic experiences by promoting arts education for students, including disadvantaged students and students with disabilities. The grant supports the implementation of high-quality model professional development programs for arts educators and other instructional staff in the areas of music, dance, drama, media arts, visual arts, and folk arts. Projects use innovative instructional methods and current knowledge from education research with emphasis on: the development, enhancement, or expansion of standards-based arts education programs and/or the integration of standards-based arts instruction with other core academic area content. The NPD Program provides grants for eligible entities to implement professional development activities intended to improve instruction for English Learners (ELs) and assists education personnel working with ELs to meet high professional standards. Professional development activities may include both preservice and inservice activities.
