The Development Process to Become an ABC School
Thank you for your interest to become an ABC Certified School. ABC Certified Schools maintain an arts-rich learning environment. They are unique in that arts education is not only appreciated but valued as integral to the school’s vision of student development.
Being an ABC School is a certification process, determined by its demonstrated, strategic commitments of practice. The South Carolina Arts Commission (SCAC) ABC Advancement Grant is to support ABC Certified Schools in their commitments. There are several SCAC funding opportunities to support equitable access to quality arts education, ABC Certification (and subsequent ABC Advancement Grant) is only one.
Each school’s development process is unique, yet ABC Institute has learned what components are crucial to the process of developing an ABC School from ABC Schools that have successfully sustained their commitments
What follows are the common steps of the ABC School development process. They are presented in the order most commonly recorded, however, should not be viewed as a linear, sequential checklist.
