This is just too good to just send off list.... ADVOCATE! Get your school
name out there on the Web. Get your program noticed. Do you have an art web
site? If so get that to me. If not - Get me some of your student work with a
lesson plan to put on IAD (I will do it now!)... I don't want to ramble on
too much here about this - do ask me for more details off list. I can help
you get noticed. Linda Woods' art program has received a lot of recognition
as a result of her inclusion on IAD. (Good advice Kerry - you joggled my
mind). How many of your math departments have a web site? How many of your
science departments have a web site? No need to answer - I already
know.....Don't get me started.... Any one who is still reading - Check

I think your ideas are splendid!! I think a lot of it depends on what is
budgeted for your department and a lot of that depends on promoting yourself
and your department to the people who allocate the money. Check that out and
start to make your department and what you do well thought of by the people
with the bucks.

I just joined this list serve and I thought I'd see if anyone had any advice
for me. . .
I work in a middle school that currently serves 950 students in grades 6-8.
There are two art teachers here:one full time and one part time (me). I am
looking to expand the art program by incorporating electives. I would like
to see the art program receive as much respect and attention as the music
program in our building. ......
