Illinois Plan for the Arts in General Education: Fiscal Years 1984-1988.
Illinois State Board of Education, Springfield. Program Planning and Development Section.
Accomplishments of the first 4 years (1979-1983) of the Illinois arts plan are discussed and activities to be implemented in its second 4-year plan (1984-1988) are listed. According to the Illinois State Board of Education, the arts should be viewed as an integral part of the curriculum and every school system should assure that all students have access to exploration and study of the arts throughout their formal education. Activities implemented to achieve this goal during the first 4 years are organized according to the following headings: state board of education arts advisory structure; statewide leadership, visibility, and awareness activities for the arts; arts curricula and model site development; arts activities for the handicapped; collection of data on arts status, resources, and funding sources; standards; inservice education for teachers, administrators, and community persons; preservice teacher education, and certification standards. The impact achieved and problems encountered are examined. Future activities in these same areas are discussed, including funding and fiscal implications. The appendix contains the task force philosophy and members' names. (RM)
