2. For 2021/2022 you should pay attention to see if the budget being devised is based on the 2020/2021 school year (COVID) or the 2019/2020 school year (budget before COVID).
This is important since the 2020/2021 school year is nothing like a “normal” year and you can ensure that program adjustments because of COVID do not become permanent. Short term enrollment declines in arts programs because of COVID should not be used as justification to reduce staffing or cut programs!
3. Use the Arts Ed Now Action Hub to connect with each other & report what’s going on.
