CMEA and the 4 ArtsEd. Orgs. Respond Superintendent Torlakson Regarding Arts Assessment Survey
Leaders of the 4 ArtsEd. Organization Coalition (CAEA, CDEA, CETA, and CMEA) have responded to Superintendent Torlakson that no statewide assessment in the arts should be created in California until current visual and performing arts standards are updated and adopted by the State Board of Education. Creating a new assessment system for arts education must wait until our Standards are updated.
CMEA encourages its members to take the short California Assessments of Student Performance and Progress Visual and Performing Arts Stakeholder Survey: http://www.caaspp.org/vpa-survey.html . Share your voice in the conversation!
