Art, Music, and World Language Survey
Below is a message and link that you should have received via email last week. If you have not yet completed the survey, please do so now. Thank you for your participation!

We are currently conducting a program review / program visioning for the areas of K-12 art, music, and world language in the Whitnall School District. Since we don't have vision statements or goals for any of the programs, we aren't really conducting a review of the programs in terms of effectiveness, as there haven't been any established expectations.

Our goal is to develop a program vision for each of the three programs so we have common language and expectations for all stakeholders. Having a program vision allows the district to align resources (personnel, facilities, curriculum, offerings, schedules) to that vision. Whenever there are changes to be considered, it is important to align the decisions and changes around the vision.

We are soliciting feedback from the community, parents, staff, and students--both program and non-program participants. We have conducted interviews and are now conducting surveys. Please take time to complete our survey regarding the current and future programming for art, music, and world language. The survey will be open through June 10, 2019.
