The study analyzes parallels between the ELA and Math Standards and the foundations of artistic literacy outlined in the National Core Arts Standards: A Conceptual Framework for Arts Learning, the NCCAS document guiding the work of the writing teams. The Common Core report was prepared by Amy Charleroy, the associate director for the College Board’s Office of Academic Initiatives.

The College Board, an NCCAS partner, has conducted several research projects for the coalition, under the leadership of the Office of Academic Initiative’s senior director, Dr. Nancy Rubino. All of the reports are available on the NCCAS web page

Michael Blakeslee, deputy executive director and chief operating officer of the National Assocation for Music Education (NAfME), said NAfME staff and NAfME members have worked closely with NCCAS throughout the standards writing process for National Core Arts Standards.

The Standards are scheduled to be ready for review early this summer.
