ANNUAL BOARD REPORT
August 13, 2013
Mission Statement
Denton ISD: Empowering lifelong learners to be engaged citizens
who positively impact their local and global community.
Fine Arts Advocacy
The GoArts advocacy initiative is sponsored by the Texas Coalition for Quality Arts Education
(TCQAE), a coalition of more than twenty-five organizations whose mission is to promote fine
arts in our Texas schools. This organization works in conjunction with the Texas Music
Educators Association whose membership numbers approximately 11,000 music educators
from around the state.
GoArts supports education policies, primarily at the state level, that ensure all Texas students
have opportunities to study music, art, theatre, and dance. The organization provides the
public, as well as policy makers, with information about the many ways that arts education
benefits students. The group believes that every Texas student should receive:
• a well-balanced education
• quality fine arts instruction
• protected instructional time for arts education
• opportunities to pursue their passion
Legislation Impacting Fine Arts
The new House Bill 5 legislation signed into law by Governor Perry on June 10, 2013 produced
significant gains in fine arts education as follows:
• students may receive an Arts and Humanities Endorsement on their diploma
• the high school foundation plan continues requiring all students to complete one fine
arts credit for graduation
• the middle school curriculum requires one fine arts course in grades 6, 7, or 8
• TEKS-based instruction in art, music, and theatre must be taught in grades K-5
• districts must adopt and strictly enforce a policy limiting removal of students from
academic classes for remedial tutoring or test preparation (fine arts classes are defined
by law as academic)
• districts must evaluate the overall district as well as each campus by August 8th each
year for Community and Student Engagement as having exemplary, recognized,
acceptable, or unacceptable performance in nine areas, one of which is fine arts
Fine Arts TEKS Revisions Adopted by State Board of Education
Revisions to the Fine Arts TEKS in dance, music, theatre, and the visual arts, adopted by the
State Board of Education at its April, 2013 meeting, is based on and supportive of the following
premise:
The fine arts incorporate the study of dance, music, theatre, and the visual arts to offer
unique experiences and empower students to explore realities, relationships, and ideas.
These disciplines engage and motivate all students through active learning, critical
thinking, and innovative problem solving. The fine arts develop cognitive functioning
and increase student academic achievement, high-order thinking, communication, and
collaboration skills. This makes the fine arts applicable to college readiness, career
opportunities, workplace environments, social skills, and everyday life. Students develop
aesthetic and cultural awareness through exploration leading to creative expression.
Creativity is essential and the study of the arts nurtures and develops the whole child.
One overall change that affects all grade levels is the renaming of the Fine Arts TEKS strands to
align across all four artistic disciplines:
1) Foundations: perception and observation, inquiry and understanding, and literacy
2) Creative Expression
3) Historical and Cultural Relevance
4) Critical Evaluation and Response
Goals of and improvements to the Fine Arts TEKS in the revision process are as follows:
• Provides a sequential and spiraling set of concepts across all grade levels
• Increases rigor as students move through the grade levels
• Addresses the higher levels of college and career readiness in meeting 21st century skill
requirements
• Provides more opportunities to increase the use of technology in improving instruction
and enhancing learning and understanding in and through the fine arts
• Introduces and incorporates cross-curricular concepts among the fine arts disciplines
and relates these ideas to learning in other subject areas
