Ingenuity’s second State of the Arts in Chicago Public Schools report details the progress made in the 2013-14 school year on the goals and recommendations set forth in the City’s first-ever CPS Arts Education Plan which was approved by the Chicago Board of Education in November of 2012.


Key Findings

  • Among the findings from the report is that CPS schools have increased arts instruction, staffing, partnerships and funding during the second year of implementing the CPS Arts Education Plan.
  • The report also finds that combined District and external funds committed to arts education in CPS increased 11 percent, or by nearly $14 million—most of which has been dedicated to CPS’ hiring of credentialed arts instructors.
