- "Our goal of turning over the VTS to the administration of the Fine Arts Department of the SAISD was achieved in May 2005." The district agrees to the premise of achieving realistic attainable growth that creates program endurance and full adoption by SAISD.
- Create a relationship between art museums and
inner city schoolteachers, so that teachers feel
confident to teach in a museum setting and incorporate
museum resources into their lessons. From the
training sessions teachers will become more familiar
with museum resources and personnel so that relationships
are established between educational institutions.
Teachers will then feel comfortable to further
incorporate fine arts into lesson plans. Teachers
will receive regular questionnaires and program
evaluation forms, as well as participate in evaluation
discussions of the training methods and report
on classroom progress.
- Bridge cultural institutions and the underserved
public by expanding the VTS Family Day. The Family
Day events reach low income, education poor families
who otherwise would not visit the museum. Parents
witness and practice the VTS method with their
children having the opportunity to learn methods
of listening and learning facilitation.
