ACHF Cultural Heritage
Our overarching goal with this project is to present a high quality program of a strong educational and artistic nature, while being enjoyable and accessible to all members of our community, regardless of age, background or ability. Another important goal, which is harder to measure in the short term is to help foster tolerance and respect for people of other cultures. Every participating teacher will be asked to fill out the teacher evaluation form. They will also be told that they are welcome to have all of their students fill out evaluation forms, but that we ask that at least have five students in each class do so. We will also have evaluation forms available to attending seniors and to the public performance audience. These will be gathered and tallied by project director Jodi Wambeke and the results will be included in this grant's final report, together with verbal comments made by the music, band, choir, and orchestra teachers in a post-program staff meeting.
