The House Education Committee voted favorable this afternoon for a Committee Substitute for Senate Bill 66 that would direct the State Board of Education to appoint a task force to create a comprehensive arts education development plan for the public schools.
The House Education Committee Substitute for Senate Bill 66 must be heard by the full House, possibly as early as this week.
Please contact your Representative no later than Wednesday at 5pm. Once the House approves, the House Education Committee Substitute for Senate Bill 66 must be sent back to the Senate for concurrence.
The Task Force will consider policies, recommend appropriate action and implementation strategies, and assess funding needs. The Task Force will report to the Education Committees of the House and Senate no later than December 1, 2010.
Support a comprehensive arts education program in our public schools by responding to this Call to Action.
TAKE ACTION NOW.
