Glenview and Other OUSD Representatives
Visit Chicago Arts Program – CAPE

Principal Deitra Atkins, Glenview 2nd grade teacher – Linda Morgan, and Glenview’s MILE teacher Alison Streich were among an identified group of fifteen arts leaders from OUSD, Alameda County Department of Education, and Oakland Community that went to see the Chicago Arts Partnerships for Education (CAPE) program.

About fifteen years ago CAPE began working with Chicago Public Schools to develop a sequential arts program making use of community partners and certificated arts specialists working in the schools. The partnership uses highly integrated strategies to leverage learning in more than one content area. CAPE work looks at quality arts integration in a system/district environment – drawing on relationships between community arts partners, arts specialists and a school district to rethink teaching and learning relationships so that every child learns at high levels.

During walk-through visits, our bay area representatives found that many of the activities seen in Chicago CAPE schools are also taking place in many Oakland schools. It was a valuable visit that has broadened Oakland’s network base and validated work that is going on in our school.
