I’m writing to share with you an opportunity to provide input in April and May on Fine Arts standards under consideration in Iowa.
Iowa’s Fine Arts Standards Adoption Team, which was convened by the Iowa Department of Education earlier this year, has requested broad public feedback on the National Core Arts Standards, which were developed by the National Coalition for Core Arts Standards. Feedback gathered through spring public forums and an online survey will be used to provide guidance to the Fine Arts Standards Adoption Team, whose charge is to recommend fine arts standards to the State Board of Education. If adopted, fine arts standards would be recommended, but not required for Iowa school districts.
Public forums have been scheduled statewide on April 25 and April 27, and an online feedback survey is open through May 12at the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ZF7BCQY
Details on the public forums are as follows:
