This guide provides an overview to programs under the Elementary And Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) as reauthorized by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. These laws are the basis for most federal funding for the nation's schools. The guide is a layered document with information at a glance, as well as links to more detailed information and resources. It is intended to help local and state leaders and practitioners learn about opportunities for securing funding to improve arts education and to use the arts to improve overall student performance. The guide provides information about three major areas of reform resulting from the new law: (1) the inclusion of arts as a core academic subject; (2) the new accountability plans that each state must develop; and (3) the law's requirement for programs to be based on research. It presents one page descriptions of several U.S. Department of Education programs that have funded arts education projects in the past, or, in the case of new programs, those that show promise of doing so in the future. Each program description in the guide includes information on: program name; contact information and Web link site; citation to the No Child Left Behind Act; who may apply or otherwise participate; and amount of fiscal year 2002 funding. In some cases, a box at the bottom of each program page provides anecdotal information on how arts teachers and/or organizations have been or may become involved in the program. (BT)
