Image for Final Review of NCCAS Draft Currently Underway

Feb 14, 2014

On Friday, February 14, the National Coalition for Core Arts Standards (NCCAS) launched the final public review of the draft PreK-12 arts standards in dance, media arts, music, theatre, and visual arts. The review will close on February 28.

NCCAS is the partnership of national arts and education organizations and media arts representatives that are developing the 2014 National Core Arts Standards. The new, voluntary grade-by-grade web-based standards are intended to affirm the place of arts education in a balanced core curriculum, support the 21st-century needs of students and teachers, and help ensure that all students are college and career ready.
This third and concluding review reflects NCCAS’s ongoing commitment to a responsive and transparent strategy that allows adequate time for each arts discipline’s standards writing team to incorporate changes to the drafts suggested by reviewers, in preparation for a web-based release of the standards in June, 2014.
To participate in the review, visit the NCCAS wiki page.
