Guaranteeing Access to the Arts
WHAT IS LIFT EVERY STUDENT
In 2017, Any Given Child (AGC) Jacksonville and the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville (CCGJ) partnered to develop Lift Every Student, an arts integration initiative. Through this program, artists in Duval County apply to receive training facilitated by The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and then develop residency plans that correlate to curriculum standards established by Duval County Public Schools (DCPS). Residency plans are reviewed by a panel and applicants are then selected to serve as teaching artists in classrooms within Duval County Public Schools. Teaching artists are paired with educators to merge the arts with other academic areas.
The following schools are partiicpating in Lift Every Student during the 2017-2018 academic year.
