Illinois Arts Standards Initiative
Over the past 16 months, ILMEA has been involved in a project aimed at creating new Illinois Learning Standards in the arts. Chaired by ISBE and the Arts Alliance Illinois, this project began with the National Core Arts Standards and adapted them for use by Illinois arts educators.
The largest difference from the National Core Arts Standards in music to this draft is the elimination of multiple tracks of standards at the high school level. The proposed new standards would ratiain one track of standards from PreK-Advanced High School.
