SCAAE's Annual Arts Integration Conference
Mariott Hotel, 1200 Hampton Street, Columbia, SC

October 2-3, 2014



What a year! The face of education in South Carolina has rapidly evolved in the past few months since we last came together. Stories of STEAM programs taking flight, the expectation of the new Core Arts Standards, the development of the pivotal Read to Succeed Act… the list of education initiatives is growing daily.  Through all of this, arts integration continues to thrive.  It is – now more than ever- the solid foundation that promotes quality education for the whole child. Regardless of directions and trends, the arts continue to initiate learning.


For the past twelve years, SCAAE’s annual professional development conference has provided educators with an opportunity to learn how the arts effectively engage students. This year’s conference will contain sessions that directly address the role of arts integration in 2014’s biggest initiatives, including Common Core, Educator Evaluation, Student Assessment, the new Core Arts Standards, STEAM and Read to Succeed (Literacy Development).
