CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR VISUAL ARTS DEPARTMENT FOR THIS OUTSTANDING RECOGNITION!
The Pennsylvania Art Education Association (PAEA) is proud to recognize schools and districts across the state of Pennsylvania for their commitment to visual arts education opportunities for all students PK-12.

Congratulations, Outstanding Visual Arts Community!  Palisades is one of 26 districts in the state to receive this recognition!

Schools and districts receiving this endorsement demonstrated the importance of their visual arts programs during the 2019-2020 school year with:

Rigorous and Inclusive Programs: Arts programs demonstrated rigor using standards-based curriculum taught at every level by highly qualified and certified art educators.
Highly Accessible Programs: Art programs were offered to all students at every level of education with a sustainable budget for the visual arts.
Highly Visible Programs: Schools and districts identified their programmatic accomplishments, curriculum for all levels, art staff, mission statements, and arts events using their school websites and social media.

This is now the 3rd recognition we have received!  Two of our other programs recognized in the past year are the World Language Program and our Music Program!  Great work Palisades!
