College Station ISD was recently named one of only 42 winners of the 2020 Texas Art Education Association (TAEA) District of Distinction Award.

The award honors school districts that are leading the way in the visual arts. The district received the honor for providing a well-rounded education which advocates and integrates visual arts curriculum to inspire creativity and reach all different learners and has outstanding leadership in promoting the arts in their district and community. 

The organization also looks at field experiences, community service, and community exhibitions as part of the rigorous scoring rubric for the award. The 42 selected districts represent the top four percent of more than 1,000 eligible districts.

“College Station ISD has set a high standard for visual arts advocacy, integrated visual arts curriculum, encouraged creativity and community participation,” said Stacia Gower, Chair of the Administration and Supervision Division of TAEA. “With the challenges educators faced this past school year it is a true testament to their skill, dedication, and flexibility that the quality of their programs continued strong and comprehensive.”

“We are thrilled to receive this wonderful honor,” said Eric Eaks, Director of Fine Arts for College Station ISD. “This award is a powerful testament to our commitment in offering dynamic and vibrant visual arts programs as a piece of our overall district fine arts programs.”

College Station ISD will be honored at the TAEA Administration & Supervision Division meeting as part of the TAEA Conference on November 21, 2020.
