Incubating Fine and Performing Arts/Stream

As part of the largest-ever program expansion in the district, beginning in SY19-20, a number of CPS district-managed schools will be awarded new Fine & Performing Arts and STEAM program distinctions on a yearly basis.

CPS is providing all incubating schools (also including STEM, IB, Dual Language, World Language, Personalized Learning, and Gifted schools) significant investments to support staffing, training, learning resources, and other elements needed to ensure programs are successfully implemented.
