Strategic Plan

Project Abstract

The goal of this strategic plan implies that students in every elementary and secondary school will experience each of the MSDE Essential Learner Outcomes in the fine arts and score satisfactory on selected fine arts assessments. This plan will provide for systematic implementation of assessment, the hiring of additional staff, continued staff development, instrumental resources for students in need, expanded partnerships within the arts community, replacement of needed equipment, and a long-range technology implementation plan. Priority will be given to a strong instructional base at the elementary and secondary levels in both dance and drama, the greatest weaknesses in ELO implementation. Specialists will be hired as the program expands at the elementary and secondary school levels. Additionally, technological resources will be added to the program as funds are available. Throughout the five-year period, ArtsReach will stay actively involved to help expand partnerships within the community and region.
