Our district is currently looking at expanding and overhauling the visual
arts program. Our hope is that we will be able to convince our school
board to add art teachers on every elementary campus and to offer
advanced classes on the middle school and H.S.levels. Currently our art
courses are not scheduled in order to provide for sequential learning nor
are we able to provide for the career oriented art student. With
statistics, we may be able to make a strong enough case to support needed
changes and make a good presentation. Does any one out there have any
definative info.supporting visual arts programing? We need statistics
such as correlations between art, grades and test scores etc. Also what
about pamphlets, videos etc. that could be shown to board members?
Thanks! Terry G
