Fine Arts Standards Review and Possible Revision
At its February, 2017 meeting, the Missouri State School Board authorized the convening of workgroups (as outlined in Section 160.154, RSMo) to review and possibly make recommendations for new Fine Arts learning expectations. Statute requires that a workgroup consisting of 16 K-5 educators and 17 6-12 educators be assembled to review the existing standards.
At its October, 2017 meeting, the State Board finalized its approval of the workgroup committee membership.
On November 5, 2018, representatives of the Fine Arts Work Groups met to continue progress on the development of the Missouri Fine Arts Learning Expectations. The work focused on proofreading the GLE’s, Crosswalks, and Glossaries for the new Dance, Visual Arts, Music and Theatre Missouri Learning Standards.
The workgroups will present the first draft of the GLE’s at the State Board of Education meeting December 6, 2018.
If you have any questions about the existing Missouri Fine Arts Learning Expectations or the process of standards review and revision in Missouri, please contact Tom Tobias—Arts Education Director, firstname.lastname@example.org.
