Statewide Strategic Plan for the Arts & Survey
As the State develops a comprehensive approach to the revitalization of arts education in New York, we are sharing a DRAFT Statewide Strategic Plan for the Arts.
This Statewide Strategic Plan for the Arts will serve as a planning and implementation guide to support the advancement and adoption of the revised New York State P-12 Dance, Music, Theatre, Visual and Media Arts Learning Standards. The mission of the Statewide Strategic Plan for the Arts can be realized only if all Arts educators and other stakeholders are involved in supporting its implementation.
Please review the draft Strategic Plan and complete the survey. This survey will be available until October 1, 2016. Your survey responses will be used to revise the draft plan and guide our steps in the revision of arts standards and guidance materials. We thank you for your participation and look forward to your comments
