SB18-008 - Reward Access To Arts Education In Public Schools

Postponed Indefinitely
Concerning measures to reward public education entities that provide student access to arts education programs.

Under current law, the accreditation for school districts and the state charter school institute (institute) and the level of performance for public schools is based on the attainment of specified performance indicators. The bill creates an additional performance indicator that measures the degree to which a public school, a school district, or the institute provides access to courses or educational programs in dance, drama and theater, music, and visual arts. The state board of education must adopt rules by which a public school, a school district, or the institute will receive additional credit toward the accreditation or performance ratings based on the arts performance indicator.
(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
