The Education Development Center's Center for Children and Technology (EDC/CCT) conducted an assessment of the Center of Arts Education's (CAE) Curriculum Development and Access (CDA) Leadership grant program implemented in 18 of the original recipient sites of the Annenberg Partnership program. The overall goals of the research were to assess the following: (1) What is the durable impact of the CDA Leadership grant on the host schools? (2) What attributes contribute to a successful partnership? (3) How has focusing on professional development impact the CDA Leadership grant's goals? (4) What are the benefits and barriers of the process of dissemination? (5) How does the process of defining and creating a product effect the host school? (6) Strategic implications: What will inform CAE if it conducts the CDA Leadership program again? Interviews were conducted with the arts coordinator, arts partner, and an audience member at each of the three focus schools. In addition, three additional schools were chosen at random and telephone interviews were conducted with their arts coordinators.
