It’s Official Contracts Approved
On Wednesday, December 19th, Portland City Council took its first major steps toward the launch of Portland’s Arts Education & Access Fund by voting to approve contracts with Portland’s six school districts and the Regional Arts & Culture Council, and to appoint a Citizen Oversight Committee.
Council approved Intergovernmental Agreements between the City and Portland school districts. Annual audits will ensure that schools comply with all of the requirements of the new ballot measure. RACC gained new responsibilities with the passage of the Arts Education & Access Fund including arts education oversight, as Portland schools restore certified art and music teachers to elementary schools and build their arts curricula. RACC also will shepherd grants to qualified non-profit arts organizations and design a new grant-making program for schools and non-profits to increase arts access. Finally, Council approved the new Citizen Oversight Committee, which will watch over the districts and RACC as they implement the intent of the ballot measure.
Due annually beginning April 2013, Portland’s new $35 income tax for income-earning adult residents of Portland (and exempting any taxpayer under the federal poverty limit), will generate $12.2 million in annual net revenue. When the school year begins next Fall, nearly 70 elementary school arts teachers will be sustainably funded, every elementary school student in Portland’s six school districts will be guaranteed an arts education and arts supplies, programs and field trips will be made available for all school-age children through grant funding to Portland’s schools and non-profits. And Portland’s non-profit arts organizations will have the public support they need to bring the arts to life for every Portland resident – providing free arts experiences, reaching underserved communities and developing imaginative community-based arts experiences for our children – all while continuing to shape our neighborhoods, fuel our economy, educate our children and bring us together.
