Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who are engaged in arts education and learning opportunities increases. The quality and types of arts education and learning opportunities in our region, and the organizations or venues that offer them increases. Green Isle Community School will evaluate its Elders' celebration program by: 1. Video/audio recordings. 2. Surveys from elders, students, artists, community and staff. 3. Date collected. 4. Staff and artists discussions. 5. Staff from Green Isle Community School will create the surveys, distribute them, and tabulate the results, the surveys will be created and changed from year to year according to the results from the staff and artists discussions.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Yes, we achieved our planned outcomes. We used, distributed and tabulated a survey. Suggestions received related to sound and mic system so we will look at other options including purchasing better equipment rather than renting.
