For the second consecutive year, College Station ISD was named a District of Distinction Award winner by the Texas Art Education Association (TAEA).

CSISD was one of only 40 districts out of more than 1,100 in Texas to earn this honor.

The award signifies a district is providing a well-rounded education which advocates and integrates visual arts curriculum to inspire creativity and build social-emotional learning to connect learners to their community and beyond.

To be considered, districts submitted documentation from the 2020-2021 school year which was scored with a rubric to determine the award winners.

“College Station ISD has set a high standard for visual arts advocacy, integrated visual arts curriculum, encouraged creativity, community participation and student growth,” said Stacia Gower, Chair of the Administration and Supervision Division of TAEA. “The past school year, educators faced a great many challenges associated with constantly changing guidelines and instruction procedures as well as participation in contest and visual art events. It is a true testament to our visual art educators’ skill, dedication, and flexibility that the quality of their programs continued strong and comprehensive.”

The districts will be honored at the TAEA Administration & Supervision Division meeting and during the TAEA Fall Conference General Assembly on Friday, November 5, 2021. 

TAEA is the largest state professional organization for art educators in the United States. It is the mission of TAEA to promote quality visual arts education through leadership, advocacy, service, and professional development.
