Arts Education Census: Every Maine school principal is being invited to complete a survey collecting information about the arts education offerings at his/her school. Principals may be asking you (PreK-12 arts teachers) to help complete the survey. We urge you to participate in any way that you can so we can get a complete picture. Our goal is 100 per cent - without every school participating we will not have a complete picture of arts education in Maine!
