For the 2019 award, more than 1,000 districts were eligible to apply. Each district submitted documentation that they had met the rubric over the 2018-2019 school year. Only 20 districts met the high standard and will receive the outstanding honor indicating they are in the top 2 percent of districts in the state.
 
Lubbock ISD will be honored among the 20 districts receiving the award at the TAEA Awards ceremony as part of the TAEA Conference on Friday, November 15, 2019, at the Moody Gardens Convention Center in Galveston.
 
TAEA is the largest state professional organization for art educators in the United States. It is the mission of TAEA to promote quality visual arts education through leadership, advocacy, service, and professional development.
