Michigan K-12 Arts Education Survey
The Michigan K-12 Arts Education survey is being conducted this fall by the Michigan Assessment Consortium as part of the Michigan Arts Education Instruction and Assessment Project (MAEIA), in collaboration with the Michigan Department of Education, the Michigan Arts and Culture Council, and the Michigan Education Association.
What is the purpose of the survey?
The arts are a vital component of a well-rounded education. This survey of school principals is an important initiative to gather statewide and regional data on the status of arts education programming in public schools and public school academies in Michigan.
Who is being surveyed?
A “census’ approach is being taken to include as many perspectives as possible, which means principals of all public schools and public-school academies are being asked to participate in the survey this October – November. By now, principals should have received an email message from the Michigan Assessment Consortium with survey instructions and a link to complete the questionnaire for their school. A “universal” survey link is also being made available for principals who may not have received an email message.
How will the survey results be used?
Survey results will be analyzed to support collective action to expand equitable access to high quality arts education for Michigan’s students. Results will also be used to assist state agencies and arts education organizations in working collaboratively to offer resources, tools, and professional learning to schools and districts.
Individual school responses will be confidential and will not be reported publicly; rather, responses of all the schools that participate will be combined for reporting purposes. The data will not be used to penalize districts, buildings, or school personnel in any way.
