CAPP's Mission is to support Robbinsdale Area Schools’ comprehensive arts program by advocating for the importance of arts in school, promoting arts education, initiating arts events and partnerships, and creating opportunities for arts involvement in the community.
In 1985, Robbinsdale Area Schools was one of the first districts awarded a CAPP grant from the state arts board. Four subsequent grants and continuing district contributions have made the CAPP Committee a consistent presence in Robbinsdale Area Schools for 25 years. Throughout that time CAPP’s vision has remained consistent: All the Arts for all the Students.

This vision is guided by the CAPP Committee’s four goals:

Goal #1: Promote a Comprehensive Arts Education for All Students
Goal #2: Communicate the Role of Arts Education in Our Schools
Goal #3: Strengthen Community Connections in the Arts
Goal #4: Advocate for Staff Development and Support in the Arts

The CAPP Committee consists of community members, parents, teachers, school board members and district administration. We meet on the third Tuesday of each month (with the exception of 4/23/13) in the evenings from 6-8 p.m. at the Education Service Center at 42nd and Winnetka. We are looking for parents and community members who have an interest in strengthening our Arts education programs within Robbinsdale Area Schools. 

We currently have two specific needs: Passport to the Arts program assistance and a meeting scribe (aka secretary!) to help document and communicate information. If you are interested in either of these areas or would like to be involved in our committee in another way, please send an email to one the CAPP co-chairs who will provide you with more information.
