Senate Bill 681 was signed into law in July 2022, formally creating art high school graduation requirements in North Carolina. This graduation requirement begins this academic year with the entry into Year 6.

According to The Arts Education Partnership (AEP), all 50 states and the District of Columbia have content or performance standards for arts education, but only 32 states define arts as a core or academic subject.1

For nearly 30 years, AEP has brought together leaders in various fields of arts education in hopes of using research, reporting, and collaboration to advance all arts education.

Through the ArtsEdSearch tool, AEP provides research into the impact of the arts on student success, school culture, community engagement, and more. They publish an annual ArtScan report comparing enacted arts education policies state by state. By aggregating this data, people and policy makers can easily see how different states support the arts.

Housed within the State Board of Education, AEP was established with the support of the National Endowment for the Arts, the U.S. Department of Education, the Council of State School Superintendents (CCSSO), and the National Assembly of State Arts Institutions (NASAA). .

The most important part of storytelling is listening to your students. You ask about art in an interview, but you actually ask about art. why do you like to sing what do you like about school What’s the hardest? Why did you choose those colors? Do you think music brings hope?

Students across the state opened up and reminded readers about what it’s like to be in school, why art is important to them, and the community it builds.
