Cooke, Jay School



Jay Cooke Elementary School completed an LCA for dancing classrooms to provide ballroom dancing instruction in six ballroom dance styles. All residencies were conducted with Dulaine Method as the guiding philosophy. Dancing classrooms align their curriculum with JCES and the PBIS goals as well as facilitated lessons about the history of the dance. Sessions took place between February 25, 2019 and May 8, 2019.  This ratification is required due to a mistake by Jay Cooke Elementary School in not understanding the correct procedure for compensating for service to be covered by an LCA.
