Eastern Suffolk BOCES Arts-in-Education (AIE) services coordinates contracting and payment processing for school performances and residencies by offering member districts a wide selection of arts programs screened for their quality and curriculum connections.
AIE services offers the Arts-in-Education & Visiting Experts Program Catalogue of over 1000 programs, 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. Other services available from AIE include:
Advisory Council Meetings - Regularly scheduled, informative meetings for school district and cultural arts representatives.
