Del Valle PAAC -The Performing Arts and Academic Collaborative

For eight years (2006-2014), Texas Performing Arts and Del Valle ISD collaborated on the Performing Arts and Academic Collaborative (PAAC). Through this program, students experienced the performing arts in their schools and on the UT campus. There was an academic connection to each event as Language Arts teachers presented related lessons that met curricular objectives.
