Every elementary school has a full time art teacher in Plano. I wouldn't
consider it art based, although one school did get a grant for an art based
program. Can't remember the name right off the bat.
What we work towards is augmenting the Integrated Curriculum program which
features the science and social studies units. We are working on a
curriculum guide, (which I'm a part of) to make our program more uniform
throughout the district. My teachers really appreciate me and the art
program and I think most schools value the art programs at their schools. I
love working in Plano. I'm just afraid that like everywhere else, the art
program will get cut because of budget crunch. Because of Robin Hood, we are
starting next year 13 million dollars in debt.
However, Plano has always been a progressive district and I'd say, come and
apply. We add on new teachers every year. My school is Wells. Come and visit
me sometime. Janet
