Imagination, Creativity and Innovation Initiative (ICI)

ICI_logo.pngImagination, Creativity and Innovation (ICI) Initiative supports schools with a mission of nurturing creativity in every learner through an integrated arts education. Schools that are part of this initiative inspire the entire community toward increased student engagement by committing to child centered, experiential, arts integrated teaching and learning. In ICI Initiative schools, the processes of creating, performing and responding to art lead to increased student achievement, increased attendance by students and staff, lower rates of retention, higher self-esteem, decreased discipline problems, greater parent participation and a growing sense of community. These schools use strong evaluation practices. For more information please see our ICI Pilot Program: Arts Integration in Schools to Reform Education press release (PDF).
