The artlook Schools site collects data on arts programming in CPS schools in the areas of staffing and instruction, budget and planning, and partnerships. The data is entered by each school’s Arts Liaison and informs the school’s category along a continuum that is reflected on schools’ annual progress report. The five categories along the Creative Schools Certification continuum range from “Incomplete Data” to “Excelling.”
Schools are encouraged to use the information to help them:
The site also provides each school’s data points on artlook Map. By selecting a specific school, visitors can view the school’s arts assets as well as identify potential areas of need. Potential partners and community organizations can use the snapshot to identify opportunities and to work more strategically with schools and in communities.
