AIE services offers the Arts-in-Education & Exploratory Enrichment Program Catalog of over 1000 programs, including FIELD TRIPS which include: program descriptions, standards alignment, grade level suitability, cost, contact information, and more. These programs are categorized by various art forms and by curriculum areas. The AIE office also maintains a database of performer evaluations from the previous year in which schools rate the programs they have received in four areas: artistic quality, educational quality, student response and presenter interaction, as well as technical quality. Teachers also note reasons why they would/would not recommend a program to other school districts.

Creative Classroom Collaboratives: http://creativec3.org
Puppeteers, master storytellers, beatboxing string trios, ballerinas and steppers, high quality performances and teaching artists' residencies were just a few of the components of the very successful Creative Classroom Collaboratives (C3). This 4 year school reform model was developed by the Arts in Ed office and funded by the US Dept of Education's Arts Education Model Development and Dissemination (AEMDD) grant program.
This dynamic program introduced students and teachers to new ways of learning through creative engagement. Partnering with Riverhead and William Floyd schools (Suffolk County, LI, NY) and working with grades 2-4, the project provided vibrant workshops in arts integration and 21st c skills for formal and informal educators. These sessions enabled teachers to conceptualize and plan enduring learning units with teaching artists in preparation for select artistic performances. All work, linked to the NYS and national learning standards, was intended to enable students to meet challenging expectations and to improve student and school performance.
