Richmond County Public Schools Arts Program: An Evaluation of the Impact of the Arts Program on the Curriculum, Students, Teachers, and Community, 1980-81. (Third Project Year.)
Schumacher, Sally
The third year evaluation of the Richmond County (VA) Arts Program focused on one major question: What is the impact of the Arts Program on the curriculum, students, and teachers? Data from all three years of the program were used to assess impact. Since 1978, more students participated in the art and music curriculum, with opportunities for instruction in drama and musical productions. Administrators and teachers felt that the arts program increased student awareness and appreciation of the arts, creativity, and self-esteem. Administrators perceived that teachers increased their knowledge of community resources available in the arts, and their awareness and knowledge of different art forms. Many teachers increased their usage of arts activities. Public attendance at the Arts Performance Series increased since 1978. (Author/BW)
