Background: At its January 2020 meeting, the Milwaukee Board of School Directors referred Communication 1920C-004 regarding a proposed art education policy to the Administration for follow-up.

In alignment with the Board's direction, an advisory committee was formed to develop Administrative Policy 7.45: Art Education. The committee included MPS art educators, MTEA, Board members, and the Offices of Academics, Accountability and Efficiency, Board Governance, Finance and School Administration. As a result of the the advisory committee's work, Administrative Policy 7.45: Art Education was adopted by the Board in May 2020.

The policy includes twice-yearly (March and August) updates by the Administration relative to the progress in implementing the policy as well as next steps. The attached presentation provides an overview of the progress and next steps related to implementation of Administrative Policy 7.45: Art Education.

At the August 2022 meeting, a follow up presentation was requested to provide an update on art education.
