Announcing BPS Arts Expansion Phase 4!


On June 6, 2017, Mayor Martin J. Walsh and our partners at EdVestors announced phase four of BPS Arts Expansion. This new phase includes $600,000 in grant support for continued access to quality arts education. "BPS Arts Expansion is a terrific example of equity and innovation in our district's schools," said Dr. Tommy Chang, Boston Public Schools Superintendent. "By providing quality arts opportunities to greater numbers of our young people, we are closing opportunity gaps. The arts have been a critical element of successful school improvement by making our classrooms more vibrant and engaging for students and our schools more welcoming to students and families. BPS is proud to continue this partnership that is a model in our nation."
