The self-assessment process is often one of the first points of engagement for a school district in working with AEC. The work engages all of the teachers in the target discipline(s) in a comprehensive review of the district’s arts program. This review includes:
- Baseline assessment and information gathering
- Document review
- Facilities review
- Individual interviews with teachers, administrators, and other constituents
- Student focus groups
- Parent focus groups
At the end of the process, the district receives a report that outlines findings, commendations, and recommendations as a result of the team’s work.
The Grable Foundation has generously provided funds to decrease the cost of the process for some school districts. For more information, contact Phoebe Stern.
