In February 2017, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) released their Massachusetts Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) State Plan on what determines a successful school in the Commonwealth.

Access and participation in arts education for grades K-12 is squarely in the Massachusetts ESSA State Plan and is specifically placed as a strategy to broaden the curriculum for every Massachusetts child.

This is a direct result of thoughtful work and outreach by the DESE staff and the public encouraging DESE to include access and participation in arts education as an indicator of success in K-12 Massachusetts schools. Great work by all. 

Show your support for the new Accountability System by sending a quick email to state education officials.
