Report Guides Districts on “Mapping Opportunities for the Arts” under ESSA

October 4, 2016

The Education Commission of the States and the Arts Education Partnership released a new report that gives school districts guidance on “mapping opportunities for the arts” under ESSA. The report identifies ways for states to “achieve goals” within the arts, “share promising examples” of how schools have used arts initiatives, and “provide additional resources for further investigation.” The report also includes a question and answer section focused on “the most pressing issues for the arts in education community to consider.”
