Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans that 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. Real or perceived barriers to arts learning are identified and addressed.A short online survey will be developed for students to measure satisfaction about each art and cultural field trip they attend. Staff will use the information gathered from these surveys to evaluate the success of the grant and to see if goals were met. Each student will be required to write a one page lifelong learning experience summary for each trip they attend and data will also be obtained from these summaries.
