UPDATE: Creative Schools Fund programming during COVID-19
Dear Creative Schools Fund Grantees,
We wanted to reach out to you to share some guidance on your Creative Schools Fund grants.
Both CPS and Ingenuity are working closely to monitor the COVID-19 situation and understand the degree to which it is impacting programs and partnerships. You can find the most recent information issued by CPS related to COVID-19 at cps.edu/coronavirus and Interim Guidance for Group Gatherings.
We understand that interruptions in Creative Schools Fund programs have occurred – and are just one of the many challenges currently facing the arts community, students, teachers and schools. It is our intention to be as supportive as possible as we determine specific guidance regarding the best ways to document schedule and budget changes resulting from interruption.
In the meantime, we encourage arts organizations and schools partnering with one another to communicate regularly about schedule and budget adjustments to ensure that all parties are able to stay on the same page regarding the status of the program.
All our best,
Ingenuity and the CPS Department of Arts Education
