Rep. Lipinski Announces $350,000 Grant for Summit School District

Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-3) has announced that Cook County School District 104 in Summit and Bedford Park is being awarded a nearly $350,000 grant for this school year by the U.S. Department of Education. This grant is part of the Professional Development for Arts Educators Program (PDAE).

“This grant will allow educators in Summit and Bedford Park to provide enhanced learning opportunities and to help develop a deep appreciation for the arts among our young students,” said Rep. Lipinski. “The district will be able to build upon its already impressive record of service while improving the overall experience of its students. I look forward to continuing to work to improve the resources and capabilities of dedicated educators in the Third District.”

The PDAE program supports the implementation of high-quality model professional development programs in elementary and secondary education for music, dance, drama, media arts, or visual arts, including folk arts, for educators and other arts instructional staff of kindergarten through grade 12 students.
