Writing Team Application

The National Coalition for Core Arts Standards (NCCAS) is seeking teams of 10 content experts in the areas of dance, media/digital arts, music, theatre and visual arts to help us develop the next generation of voluntary Arts Standards.

NCCAS is committed to developing next generation standards that will build on the foundation created by the 1994 document (and the 2005 dance standards), support the 21st-century needs of students and teachers, help ensure that all students are college and career ready, and affirm the place of arts education in a balanced core curriculum.

Each discipline writing team will include a balance of members across specific areas of expertise, geography, diversity and experience.

The application is a two step process as follows:

  • complete the application online at:

This is a great opportunity for you and for Maine to participate in the development of the next generation of standards work. If you are planning to apply please send me an email and let me know. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to email me at
