Webinar: ESSA Arts Indicator: A Report and Recommendation to ISBE What Are the Implications for Local Districts?
Franczek P.C. hosted our monthly webinar series covering pressing matters facing school districts. This month’s webinar focused on the ESSA Arts Indicator. The arts are essential to a complete, competitive education for all students. Illinois is one of only two states with the arts as a distinct indicator of school quality in its school accountability system. The arts indicator gives schools the opportunity to tell a fuller story of their success, but how will it work? Franczek attorneys Amy Dickerson and Michael Hernandez were joined by Jonathan VanderBrug, Policy and Research Director at Arts Alliance Illinois, to explain the indicator and review the recommendations the Illinois Arts Indicator Work Group recently presented to the State Board of Education.
