Mapping opportunities for the arts
Arts Ed Partnership has created a resource on the Every Student Succeeds Act. This information was published on October 4, 2016 and a link to the resource is below.
By now, the education community is familiar with the passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). From the moment that ESSA was signed into law, folks across the education community – from classroom teachers to policymakers – have been clamoring with questions. Perhaps the most frequent inquiry is: “What are the opportunities for my child, classroom, district or state?”
Questions such as this come from every organization or individual impacted by the new law – including those focused on the arts in education. For this reason, Arts Education Partnership (AEP), together with a group of AEP partner organizations and other stakeholders, established the ESSA / Well-Rounded Education Working Group to identify the needs of the arts in education community and to develop resources that respond to that need. AEP recently released a new resource exploring opportunities for the arts within some of ESSA’s most pressing education priorities: Title I, accountability, assessments and state plans.
