The National Association for Music Education (NAfME) is collaborating with the NAMM Foundation, the Educational Theatre Association (edTA), the National Dance Education Organization (NDEO), and the National Art Education Association (NAEA) to collect data about the use of federal funds to support music and the arts (dance, theatre, and visual arts) in K-12 education. We hope to gather district and/or state level responses from all fifty states. Our organizations will illuminate success stories in our communications, share best practices with our members about how to access these funds, and include the information in our advocacy materials shared with the U.S. Department of Education and Congress.

Instructions for completing the survey:
The survey should be completed by someone in the school district or state who is knowledgeable about districtwide K – 12 music and arts instruction (dance, theatre, and visual arts). For questions 10 – 13, please consult with district-level staff who oversee federal programs and would know best about the dollar amount and use of ESSER (Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief funds established during COVID), and Titles I, II, and IV-A funds in your schools. The survey should take approximately 20 minutes to complete. The survey will remain open until December 9. For background information on federal programs, please read the NAfME Fact Sheet.
