The Minneapolis Public Schools’ Challenge Grant from the Annenberg Foundation focused on
the arts as a means for overall academic improvement. To accomplish this goal, schools were to
increase integration of the arts into the core curriculum and develop strong partnerships with
artists and arts organizations. The core of the Arts for Academic Achievement (AAA) project
was “bottom up” innovation, with the precise nature of the intervention to be defined by the

Schools were at various levels of experience in working with visiting artists and arts organization
partners, and therefore, developed a variety of approaches to implementation. The arts
integration models in elementary schools varied by what core curriculum was taught in and
