Arts in Education (AIE)
Arts in Education (AIE) is just one of the many ways the district is helping to raise student achievement and narrow the gap in student performance. AIE provides diverse educational arts activities, aligned with specific New York State standards, with professional artists, writers, and poets. All Middletown schools offer AIE and about $15,000 per school is allocated for funding each year. Additional funding is provided to buildings for "writers in residence" programs that allow professional writers and poets to work with students on literacy projects.
