Illinois Arts Standards Initiative
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 the Illinois Learning Standards is the elimination of multiple tracks at the high school level. The proposed new standards would retain one track of standards from PreK to Advanced High School.
