MATTERS NOT REQUIRING BOARD ACTION
Update on the Blue Ribbon Commission for the Arts [P-12/CE (D) 1] – the Committee was provided with an update on the work of the Blue Ribbon Commission for the Arts. At the June 2016 meeting, the Commission was updated on the approved transitional assessment options for the Arts 4+1 Pathway (AP & IB). Four Arts Blue Ribbon sub-committees were formed and are working towards transitional and long-term New York State Arts Assessments. A draft strategic plan, which includes mission and vision statements and incorporates four critical components that need to be addressed if new arts standards and assessments are adopted and/or existing standards/assessments are updated, has been shared with the field. Recommendations from the field have been incorporated and are ready to be presented to the Board of Regents for adoption and a future meeting. The Blue Ribbon Commission’s Co-Chairs will convene the Executive Committee as the subcommittees are ready to report their findings and the Commission will submit further recommendations to the Commissioner for additional approved arts assessments
