Presented by Jane Best, Director of the Arts Education Partnership at the Education Commission of the States
Session 3 of the 2018 Webinar Series.
As the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) rolls out in states, arts funders have a unique opportunity to respond and support arts advocacy efforts. In this webinar, we feature Jane Best, director of the Arts Education Partnership at the Education Commission of the States in Denver, CO. Best will provide an overview of ESSA and the value it brings to states via a case study on her work with the California Alliance for Arts Education (CAAE). Joe Landon, CAAE executive director, and Title I Program Director Laura Smyth will speak to the positive impact of arts education advocacy on their Title I initiative. Join us for this deep dive and learn what you can do to support advocacy efforts in arts education.
