fabg Saltonstall Teacher Residency
The Fine Arts Booster Group (FABG), an affiliate of the Ithaca Public Education Initiative (IPEI), has awarded $2,200 in grants to 6 Ithaca City School District (ICSD) programs that will reach over 500 students.  Drama Program Grants, Trip Scholarship Grant and the Saltonstall Foundation Teacher Residency will support students and teachers in enhancing the arts curriculum.

All secondary schools received Drama Program Grants, including DeWitt Middle, Boynton Middle, Lehman Alternative Community, and Ithaca High. These grants support the co-curricular work of drama and musical productions. Secondary school arts trips will be supported by scholarship assistance.  Saltonstall Foundation and Arts Colony hosts teachers in residence offering school-break creative retreats for teachers of the Ithaca City School District (ICSD) teachers and other districts.
