Magalie Neff
36:56
Do schools have to fill out the survey if an individual is applying?
Jeremy Gooden
38:54
Thank you for your question Magalie! I will bookmark this message to be addressed at the end of the presentation.
Meg O'Brien (she/her)
42:34
Can you send a document with all questions to us in advance? We can only see one page at a time without submitting information, knowing in advance what we need will help expedite this process for us/applicants.
Lindsay Williams
42:45
Is there a Word/PDF version of the Google Form? (Not because I need to submit it that way, but because it would be helpful to see all the questions at once - right now, each page has to be completed before the next can be viewed)
Meg O'Brien (she/her)
42:46
(Asking for SAI and CCL applications)
Nikki Olusanya

Meg O'Brien (she/her)

Hi Magalie, great question -- yes, we do ask that BPS Certified Arts Teachers have their school complete the survey. Same with Teaching artists teaching long-term residencies at a BPS school.Datasheets with up-to-date school survey info are available at the bottom of this page: https://www.edvestors.org/bps-arts-expansion/
Lizzy Mayer
43:02
For Career Connected Learning, in order to be eligible d you need to meet all three criteria (WBL, Collaborative Instruction and Credential Preparation)?
Lindsay Williams
43:04
Ha, Meg!!!
Jeremy Gooden
43:52
Thank you for your questions! For accessibility purposes, we will provide a Word document with all the questions on the application.
Meg O'Brien (she/her)
44:11
Lindsay - there’s a link I missed underneath the link to the google for - that has what we’re asking for!
Magalie Neff
44:12
Thanks Derek.
Lindsay Williams
44:28
Great, thanks!
Meg O'Brien (she/her)

If orgs request a two-year grant, is it safe to assume we wouldn’t need to reapply for FY/SY23, yes? We’d be good through to June 2023?
Derek Lin, he series, EdVestors
48:35
Hi Lizzy - for the Career-Connected Learning grants, you would choose one of the 3 criteria
Michelle Bozzi
48:55
Are these questions similar for the Individual Arts Educator grant?
Lizzy Mayer
49:59
Thanks Derek!
Emily Wilson
50:10
Can the school OR the arts partner complete this application? Or does it have to be the school?
Nancy Galluzzo - she/hers
54:25
Is there a resource of schools looking for arts partners?
Portia Brown (she/hers), Open Door Arts
54:44
For 2 year funding, is the maximum grant award amount adjusted?
Derek Lin, he series, EdVestors
54:51
Michelle -- The Individual Arts Educator grant form is shorter and a bit more straight forward.Asks about your art discipline(s), bio/resume, and type of grant (PD, Materials + Supplies, or a Combo).Then there are some short answer responds about the nature of the PD or why the materials/supplies would be helpful.here's the doc for the Individual Arts Educator Grant: https://drive.google.com/file/d/18S6Pu7JDTMOMH788_wn-lnHNEVwiOlBi/view
Lizzy Mayer
54:55
One more question about Career Connected Learning: Does the learning need to happen during school hours?
Derek Lin, he series, EdVestors
55:08
we will also be sure to share all docs/links in a follow-up email

If it’s a two-year grant is it potentially $30K or would it be $15K split over two years?
Meg O'Brien (she/her)
01:04:20
Yes - so the max option is still $15K (not $30K)
