The Arts Cadre of Educators
The OSPI Statewide Cadre for The Arts is comprised of arts educators who have both experience and expertise in one or more of the arts disciplines of dance, media arts, music, theatre, and visual arts. Cadre members have the opportunity to provide input on the arts learning standards, assessments, and implementation supports. Members may also participate in professional learning opportunities at state, regional, and local workshops and conferences.
The cadre will review and provide input on statewide materials and resources, specifically focusing on:
- Washington State K-12 The Arts Learning Standards.
- OSPI-Developed Performance Assessments.
- Intentional connections across arts disciplines and with other content areas.
- Identifying helpful resources for the field.
Please Note: OSPI does not compensate cadre members for trainings other than those arranged by OSPI for statewide professional development. If cadre members receive training requests from individual school districts or from regional partners, it is the responsibility of cadre members and their schools or districts to negotiate these requests. If ESDs or individual districts request training support from cadre members, they will be expected to negotiate compensation of the cadre member for expenses such as preparation time, substitute coverage, mileage, meals, lodging, and materials costs.
