As we begin the 2019-2020 school year, we want to thank you for your shared commitment to quality Arts Education experiences for Arizona students.

Wishing you a year full of imagination,
What an amazing week we have journeyed through together! We have introduced our new Arts Education Specialist, sent our Director to the National Arts Education Partnership Conference in Indiana, we’ve highlighted celebrations happening in our schools, and now we are pleased to unveil the Arizona Arts Education Data Project! This interactive dashboard is the most comprehensive analysis to-date of Arizona Student access and participation in Arts Education courses. Interested in learning about Arts Education access in your county? The dashboard can tell you that. What about 5th grade enrollment in dance at your district? The dashboard can tell you that. For the first time, we can clearly analyze student access and participation in the arts by geographic location, economical demographic, by artistic discipline- for EVERY school in Arizona!
Interested in the full Executive Summary, or would you rather just look at the highlights? Either way, we are working hard to better frame the Arts Education landscape as it truly exists in each of our Arizona schools.
We are very proud to share this information with you, adding to transparency and choice for you and your student(s).
Happy National Arts in Education Week form the ADE Office of Arts Education,
We had a GREAT time last Friday at ADE’s first annual Summer Arts Education Institute for K-12 Teachers and Teaching Artists! We had over 100 Arts Educators, Teaching Artists, Administrators, and Leaders in attendance! Participants enjoyed learning about Cultivating Creativity in the Classroom, building sustainable community partnerships to extend learning, and leveraging the POWER of student voice in lesson planning and performance.
Special thanks to the Alice Cooper’s Teen Solid Rock Teen Center for sponsoring the event and Chick-fil-A for providing our lunch!
PD Certificates are available through the Event Management System. Stay tuned for the NEXT ADE ArtsEd Opportunity!
