Palos Verdes Research Associates, Phoenix, AZ.
A major statewide survey was conducted to establish comprehensive, baseline information regarding arts education in the public school districts of Arizona. This report documents the findings and serves as a standard against which to measure future changes as well as a guide or starting point for responsible planning in order to effect intelligent, qualitative change for arts education in Arizona public schools. The findings are reported in three major sections: a Superintendents' Section, a Budget Section, and an Arts Section. Each section contains specific tables, charts, and commentaries relating to programs in creative writing, dance, drama/theater, music, traditional/ethnic arts, visual arts, and integrated arts. The superintendents section contains information relevant to how superintendents view community support for the arts; numerical details about exemplary or innovative arts programs; and a list of immediate and long range needs for the improvement of arts instruction. The budget section contains fiscal information relevant to overall and specific programs. Finally, the arts section addresses such issues as content, scheduling, personnel, certification, evaluation, instructional space and furnishings, and curriculum development. (KM)
