  • Recommendations: policy
    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.
  • Recommendations: student centered
    Strengthen curricular, instructional and assessment approaches aligned to Arizona Academic Standards in the Arts through pilot programs, research and web-based resources;
    • Develop assessment tools, products and processes to determine student proficiency in arts learning.
    Schedule an Arizona Department of Education review of schools where no arts instruction is available so information, policies and resources may be aligned to support the restoration of arts education in these schools.
  • Recommendations: TEACHER SUPPORT
    Collaborate with the Arizona Charter School Board and the Arizona Charter Schools Association to assist charter schools on the law requiring arts education in K-8 and high schools, and provide technical assistance to charter schools to meet Arizona Academic Standards in the Arts.
    Strengthen partnerships between schools and arts and culture resources.
    Develop better communication tools and strategies to connect arts and culture providers (teaching artists, cultural organizations, community resources) with schools.
    Strengthen education plans and education funding for large and mid-sized arts and cultural organizations.
