Arts Education Data Project Logo

All students on Long Island deserve the opportunity to enroll in high quality arts education curriculum that will provide them with the important skills they need to succeed in today’s competitive workforce.

Up until now, we lacked the tools to show us where (and how) arts education is offered across the state. The Arts Education Data Project, provides a suite of tools to help increase participation and ensure student success in arts education.

The Data Project is designed to increase access, equity, and participation in arts education across the state by analyzing and reporting school-level data on arts education courses and grades pre-K - 12 enrollment. This project will empower nonprofits, foundations, and districts with data for informed decision making and support strong learning networks for arts and music programs.


SPECIAL EVENT > > A Briefing on the NY Arts Education Data Project

Join us on Wednesday, March 15th for this workshop in partnership with the Arts Education Data Project! Learn how to use this incredible free resource to advance access, equity, and participation in arts education in your schools and communities.

The Arts Education Data Project has spent over 15 years working in partnership with state departments of education, state arts councils, and foundation partners to collect data on arts education availability and participation. This initiative gathers this data and transforms it into a publicly available interactive dashboard, updated annually to reflect the true status of arts education in each school.

This work is vital in the conversation about the importance of arts education, providing factual evidence in order for educators to develop programs, enhance curriculum and produce authentic measures that support arts programs.

We will be joined by Dr. Bob Morrison, Project Director of the Arts Education Data Project and CEO and Founder of Quadrant Research, who will provide a demonstration on how data can be used to increase access, equity, and participation in arts programs across the state.

On this interactive, color-coded dashboard, you can view arts participation for by school-level (PreK-12), district, county and statewide. Data is added annually and informed directly from the NY State Department of Education, allowing the project to show change since year-over-year. The dashboard does not display information regarding community arts opportunities or programs outside the school day.
