Arts Education Survey 2014

The Arts Education Survey for 2014 is currently closed.  An official report will be posted here in the fall.

In 2008 the Colorado Department of Education partnered with the Colorado Creative Industries (CCI) in conducting a survey of school principals across the state regarding arts education programs and course offerings. The survey information was extremely helpful and provided a snapshot of the work, efforts, and needs of arts educators. Survey results have informed the support efforts of CDE and numerous arts education organizations in countless ways.

It is time to update this information. A new and exciting change from the past study is that each participating school will receive its own individual and unique “benchmark report” comparing their school’s arts education indices to the aggregate of all other schools. This survey does not ask for student specific information; its questions center primarily around the type and frequency of arts education provided in your school. And, only the survey respondent and Jane Hansberry (CCI Researcher) will receive any individual school results.

Below, you will find links to two letters for more information.

Thank you in advance for your help collecting this information. We hope to increase the number of participating schools from the 2008 study so we can support state needs in arts education!
