School Boards hold the keys to arts education!

With hundreds of Washington school board positions up for election this fall, voters have a critical opportunity to select leaders who are committed to providing the high quality, sequential arts learning that every student deserves to develop vital 21st century skills.

How will voters know which candidates support arts education and are willing to work to improve its provision? 

ArtsEd Washington is sponsoring a School Board Candidate Survey on Arts Education.

ArtsEd Washington will then post candidate responses online for voters to consider before making their school board decisions.

You can help:

  • Ask your school board candidates to take the survey;
  • Get your candidates on the record with their positions regarding arts education;
  • Educate your candidates on the importance of arts education and that the arts are core (required by law as part of the state definition of basic education); and
  • Demonstrate the importance that your community places on arts education in schools.
