Nest Generation Oregon Arts Standards – The Oregon Alliance for Arts Education (OAAE), the statewide advocacy organization promoting PreK-12 instructional access to the arts for all students, is leading an effort to revise and update the Oregon Arts Content Standards. In partnership with the leading professional arts education organizations in dance, music, theatre, visual arts and media arts and in consultation with the Oregon Department of Education, OAAE will develop and fund a statewide working group to align Oregon’s arts standards to the new voluntary national standards in the arts and the Common Core State Standards. These standards will re-affirm that the arts are a core academic subject area in the well-rounded curricular education of Oregon’s PreK-12 students. Five writing teams for dance, media arts, music, theatre and visual arts are established and preparing for work. They will be reviewing the PreK-8 national standards coming out at the end of June, to be followed by high school standards shortly thereafter. They will work on like Oregon standards and work to have them ready for Oregon public review at the end of September. All work will be electronically accomplished and each team will be establishing their own collaborative webinar/Skype/ichat times. Questions, please contact Nancy at email@example.com.
