• How do these new standards differ from standards developed and promoted over ten years ago?
• How can standards be used locally - in individual school districts - to advance access and opportunity for all children to be engaged in arts learning?
• How can standards unite arts educators across various arts disciplines so to create a unified approach to curriculum development and student inclusion in arts learning K-12?
• How can the new arts education standards matter to YOUR district?
