Recommendations: policy IN PROGRESS Require schools and districts to sign an annual statement stating that they are teaching the arts according to the Arizona Academic Standards in the Arts. Continue collecting and analyzing data on arts education;
Embed arts education reporting within the state’s data system for education,
Undertake a stand-alone mandated arts education census in 2012-2013 to monitor progress since 2008-2009.
