Del Valle ISD earns District of Distinction for 2nd year in a row
For the second year in a row, the Texas Art Education Association (TAEA) announced that Del Valle ISD is among the 2021 District of Distinction Award winners. Districts received the honor by providing a well-rounded education that advocates and integrates visual arts curriculum to inspire creativity and reach all different learners.
For the 2021 award, over 1,100 districts were eligible to apply. Each district submitted documentation they met from the 14-point rubric over the 2020-2021 school year. Only 40 districts met the high standard and will receive the outstanding honor indicating they are in the top 4 percent in art education of districts in the state.
Del Valle ISD provides robust arts education experiences to all students Pre-K through 12th grade. Highly qualified visual arts teachers collaborate with teachers in other content areas and across the school to provide meaningful, content-rich experiences for our students. In addition to engaging in the art-making process, Del Valle ISD students have the opportunity to participate in local, regional, and state contests, service learning opportunities, workshops with professional artists, and many more.
TAEA will honor the 42 districts, including Del Valle ISD, at the TAEA Administration & Supervision Division meeting as part of the TAEA Conference in November.
