Iowa’s Fine Arts Standards Adoption Team, convened by the Iowa Department of Education earlier this year, has requested broad public feedback on the National Core Arts Standards, which were developed by the National Coalition for Core Arts Standards. 

Feedback gathered through spring public forums and an online survey will be used to provide guidance to the Fine Arts Standards Adoption Team, whose charge is to recommend fine arts standards to the State Board of Education.

Public forums have been scheduled statewide on April 25 and April 27, and an online feedback survey is open through May 12 .

If adopted, fine arts standards would be recommended, but not required for Iowa school districts.

The public forum for our area will be held from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, April 25, at  Heartland Area Education Agency, 6500 Corporate Drive, Johnston.
