Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who are able to participate in the arts increases. Real or perceived barriers to arts participation and arts access are identified and addressed. 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. The number of Minnesotans who participate in arts festivals and folk and traditional activities increases. Tim Adams has been assigned to create a new survey that will specifically look at how the Minnesota community looks at the arts and the place of the Lancers in it. Does it benefit the community to have music festivals, strengthening bonds and increasing appreciation and awareness of the arts? Does it make the lives of Minnesotans better to have this type of activity accessible to them in their immediate area? Is this something they feel should be supported and encouraged in the future? For the students - What did you learn in Lancers? What did it show you about yourself and your fellow students? What lessons can you apply to other areas (school, home, church, community, volunteering) from Lancers? Are you planning to work harder at school next year? Why? Would you encourage other students to participate in Lancers?

Measurable Outcome(s)

Yes, we achieved our planned outcomes. We created, distributed and tabulated a survey. The 125 surveys showed the audience demographics and events the students and families found valuable, and what needs to be re-evaluated for next season.
