NAEA's School Art Program Standards Updated for the Millennium

* Fits Format of Materials Used by Educational Accrediting Agencies


RESTON, VA-A comprehensive set of recommendations concerning the types and
levels of school learning environment support necessary for students to
achieve the national content standards for arts education has been updated as
schools approach the millennium. Recent literature of art education suggests
more attention to cognitive learnings about the history, criticism, and
cultural role of art, as well as certain other trends and issues which
require notice. Purposes, Principles, and Standards for School Art Programs
reflects those changes.

Chaired by Dr. Bonnie B. Rushlow, Coordinator of Fine Arts, School District
of Oconee County, SC, the committee included NAEA members from throughout the
United States: Dr. Rogena M. Degge, Arts & Administration Program, University
of Oregon; Diane Fogler, Visual Art Coordinator, Rockaway Township, NJ;
Harvey B. Goldstein, Art Consultant, Farmington Public Schools, MI; Sharon
Seim, Arts Consultant, Bellevue Public Schools, NE.

"Probably the most important change is in the greater specificity of the
standards, which comprise part of this document," said Rushlow. "More
specific standards are intended to help anyone to judge the quality of a
school program of art education; they are organized to fit conveniently with
the format of materials used by educational accrediting agencies."

* Specifications for Seven Art Education Program Components

This newly revised publication is directed toward the promotion and
recognition of educationally sound visual art programs in elementary,
middle/junior, and high schools. It is designed as a self-assessment
evaluation of the seven art education program components: Organization,
Curriculum, Personnel, Scheduling, Facilities, Materials/Equipment, and
Budgets. A nomination form/self-assessment checklist for the Standards Award
is included.

Recommendations include specifications on the design and layout of K-12 art
facilities, including space, storage, sinks, display areas, location,
lighting, safety, the placement of technology, and much more. Specific
recommendations on the ratio of teachers per student populations, preparation
time, scheduling patterns, storage rooms, specialized rooms, including the
art teacher office.

* School Art Program Standards Award

Education reform has sparked a growing concern in public schooling today:
accountability. As the need also increases to keep pace with the changing
character of students and their schools, much attention has in turn been
directed to school choice, site-based management, and the assessment of
school programs. In response, NAEA has designed the School Art Program
Standards Award to assist school districts in assessing their art programs
based on nationally recognized standards. The self-assessment process is
inexpensive and does not utilize outside consultants. Those school art
programs that meet or exceed the national standards are given an award of
national recognition.

Purposes, Principles, and Standards for School Art Programs contains all the
information one needs to apply for the award. Order additional copies for
professional development and inservice training, as a part of the district
strategic program planning, as a resource for parent and voter information,
or as a text/reference for key reform task force members.

Educators are also encouraged to order extra copies for school board
members, school administrators, parent organization presidents, and art
supervisors and curriculum specialists. Be sure to include orders for staff
development libraries and teacher resource centers.
