March is a very busy month including two more Mega-regional MAAI workshops coming up on March 22 and 29. If you are interested in attending the free all day workshops you do need to register at http://www.maine.gov/education/lres/vpa/assessment.html. Another happening for Arts education is that we will be visiting two schools to video tape standards based arts education classrooms that will be made available to all of you towards the end of the school year. This is in response to your request from phase 2 of the Maine Arts Assessment Initiative.
