MMSD Board of Education Community Fine Arts Task Force's Arts Education Survey Information

Please take a moment to fill out the survey below. Your input is very important and will help inform and strengthen the Task Force's recommendations on arts education (dance, music, theater, visual arts). The results of this work will be compiled and presented to the Madison Metropolitan School District Board of Education next spring and shared with the public. Your individual answers will be kept confidential. In appreciation of your time in completing the on-line survey, your name, if provided at the end of the survey, will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a pair of complimentary tickets to a Madison performance or admission to local arts venues.

There are three distinct surveys. Please select the one on-line survey that best represents you.

Access to the on-line surveys will remain open through December 31, 2007. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact task force members at fineartstaskforce@madison.k12.wi.us
