Opportunities to Learn in Dance Arts Education

 

 

 

The Standards for a K-12 Model Program: Opportunities To Learn in Dance Arts Education describe the minimum criteria expected of model dance programs in K-12 schools. These standards provide guidelines for the channel of delivery, curriculum, access, scheduling, high school graduation requirements, budgeting, teacher qualifications, assessment and evaluation, professional development, facilities and equipment, and the professional engagement of educators and administrators.

 

Implementation of these Opportunity to Learn Standards creates the conditions necessary for students to gain the content skills and knowledge outlined in the Standards for Learning and Teaching Dance in the Arts.

 

These standards may be used by both educators and administrators to develop, strengthen, and evaluate dance arts programs in their schools.
