Arts Assessment Workshops: June 2017

This year the Ohio Alliance for Arts Education will host a series of regional workshops to help local educators develop arts assessments. These workshops will be based on the work done by the Ohio Arts Assessment Collaborative (OAAC). The next two workshops are scheduled for Wooster and Columbus, both on June 3. Visit our Events tab to see all upcoming OAAC PD workshops offered by OAAE and other providers.

(Interested in the workshop, but can't make it to these dates or locations? Schedule a workshop for your district with an OAAC PD provider.)

OAAE response to ODE's Draft ESSA Plan

OAAE believes that there are many opportunities for Ohio’s ESSA Plan to directly support arts education programs, and overall, we had hoped that there would be more emphasis in the consolidated plan about ESSA’s support for a well-rounded education, including the arts.

OAAE has one overall recommendation and more specific recommendations to add to Ohio’s consolidated plan.

Read OAAE's recommendations.

ACTION ALERT: Contact the Ohio Department of Education to ask that OAAE's recommendations be included in Ohio's final ESSA Plan
