Teacher Professional Learning for Middle School Educators
June 21 - 24 (In-Person) and June 27 - 28 (Online) 


This year's summer academy will be held in two sessions. The first session of the academy will be in-person. The second session of the academy will be online via Zoom. By registering for the academy, you are signing up to participate in both the in-person and online sessions.

Voices from the Field Arts Academy provides outstanding arts experiences for middle school students and educators through the Washington State Migrant Education Program. Many of the participating students have not had a great number of opportunities to experience the arts in their regular school day. OSPI has partnered with Arts Impact to create arts-infused Math and ELA lessons designed to help educators build student voice and experiences with the assistance of artist mentors. 

Project Goals    
  • Develop educator confidence and competence to integrate the arts into Math and ELA content and instruction.
  • Increase student achievement and engagement in core content through the arts. 
  • Engage families in arts education and cultural connections.
