Last Updated: 9/9/2021 6:52 PM
Lead teachers from all Stark County districts meet periodically to support teaching, learning, assessment, involvement, awareness, and participation in the arts.

Visual art specialists and music/drama specialists meet separately during the school year.  Additional professional development opportunities are available throughout the year.


Topics past and present that have been addressed by the Lead Teachers are:

  • Arts advocacy in the schools, community, and nation
  • State and national content standards
  • Differentiated lesson planning
  • Lesson sharing
  • Grants and finding opportunities
  • Arts integration
  • Use of resources and technology


Participants are teachers who have been selected by their district leadership team to serve as a teacher leader, responsible for sharing knowledge and information with administrators and staff at their home district/building.

Current updates about Fine Arts can be found on the Ohio Department of Education website:
