Call for presenters! The Summit will feature a special session of ArtsEdTalks, 5-8 minute presentations led by arts educators across the state that answers the question, "How do you imagine the possibilities for arts education in Montana’s schools?"

On July 14, 2016, the Board of Public Education adopted new standards for the arts. For the first time, Montana now has discipline-specific standards in music, theatre, visual arts, media arts and dance. The new standards also include eleven unifying anchor standards across all five disciplines, and integrate Indian Education for All (IEFA). The new standards are to be implemented by all Montana public schools effective July 1, 2017. As new resources for implementing the standards are developed by the Montana Arts Council and the Office of Public Instruction, check back here to find multiple opportunities to learn about the new standards (you can start by attending the Montana Arts Education Leadership Summit in September, see above!)

Find the newly adopted standards on OPI’s website.

Watch a short, introductory video on the new standards, produced by OPI:
