    Art / Music Professional Development


    In cooperation with the New York State Council of Administrators of Music Education (NYSCAME) and the Art Supervisors  Association (ASA), the BOCES Arts in pd Education Program co-sponsors a series of professional development workshops for music and art educators.

    Workshops take place in the late afternoon at various times throughout the school year and in a variety of locations.  Each seminar is hosted by a Nassau County school which assumes responsibility for preparation of space and attendance verification.

    Clinicians and topics are suggested by music and art educators who respond to a survey annually. Presenters are highly regarded experts in their various fields.

    Nassau County school districts pay a membership fee, depending upon the size of their music and art faculties.  Once paid, this membership fee enables as many teachers from that school district to attend as many workshops as they wish.

    Given the new state mandates related to professional development, this program has proven to be an innovative and relevant response to those requirements and a tremendous source of support and assistance to those who participate.
