Fund for the Arts is excited to partner with Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) to offer educational arts integration during the 2021-2022 school year through the Middle School Success (MSS) Program.
The 2-week MSS programs align with content standards; address issues of racial inequities and social-emotional needs; expand upon the Backpack of Success Skills; and provide students with opportunities that will lead to the development of one or several Backpack of Success artifacts.
Middle schools in Jefferson County Public Schools are eligible for MSS grants.
