  8. FAEA Background Information Fine Arts Education Act (FAEA), 22-15D NMSA 1978 Encourages school districts and charter schools to offer elementary schools the opportunity to participate in fine arts activities, including visual arts, music, theater, and dance. PED s core mission within arts education is to: promote equity, excellence, inclusion, education and diversity in and through the arts, humanities, and integrated into literacy, math and sciences, and foster a rich cultural life for all New Mexicans, and boost learning and achievement The Vision for FAEA: Equity and culture elevates the quality of life in all our communities and drives arts education growth across the creative economy. These programs are inclusive and equitable, and embrace diversity; these programs empower a new generation through creative youth development and education. 8 Investing for tomorrow, delivering today.

  9. FAEA Funding Basics FAEA funding flows through the State Equalization Guarantee (SEG)-Monthly The number of fine arts education program units is determined by multiplying the full-time-equivalent MEM in programs implemented in accordance with the provisions of the Fine Arts Education Act by the cost differential factor. FAEA funding calculation: 80/120 day average (for existing programs) or 40 day average (for new programs) x 0.05 x the unit value for the upcoming school year $5,522.50 Program settings for 6th grade: PED recently worked to define that all K-6 arts programs at a New Mexico school district or charter school are eligible for FAEA funding. 6th grade will be funded regardless of setting K-6 elementary school, K-8 school, or 6th grade at a 6-8 middle school. 9

  10. FAEA Updates HB -199 There is a bill within the current legislation session that increases the cost differential factor, which has not been increased since 2006. For a big district like APS with >80K students it means over $1 million increase For medium district like Santa Fe with >10K students it means about $150,000 increase. For small districts like Clayton it means about $5,000 increase. 10

  16. Purpose-From Rule A. The purpose of the Fine Arts Education Act is to encourage school districts and state-chartered charter schools to offer opportunities for elementary school students to participate in fine arts activities, including visual arts, music, theater and dance. B. Participation in fine arts programs encourages cognitive and affective development by: (1) focusing on a variety of learning styles and engaging students who might otherwise fail; (2) training students in complex thinking and learning; (3) helping students to devise creative solutions for problems; (4) providing students new challenges; and (5) diverse cultures teaching students how to work cooperatively with others and to understand and value Chapter 22, Article 15D NMSA 1978 16

  17. Best Practices-From Rule Program plan and evaluation. A. A school district or charter school may prepare and submit to the department a fine arts education program plan in accordance with guidelines issued by the department. B. At a minimum, the plan shall include the fine arts education programs being taught, the ways in which the fine arts are being integrated into the curriculum and an evaluation component. C. At yearly intervals, the school district or charter school, the department and a parent advisory committee from the school district or charter school shall review the goals and priorities of the plan and make appropriate recommendations to the secretary Fine arts education programs; eligibility for state financial support. A. To be eligible for state financial support, a fine arts education program shall: (1) provide for the educational needs of students in the areas of visual arts, music, theater or dance; (2) integrate the fine arts into the curriculum; (3) use certified school instructors to supervise those who are teaching the program if those persons do not hold valid teaching licenses in one or more of the disciplines included in fine arts education; and 17 (4) require background checks Chapter 22, Article 15D NMSA 1978

  18. How funds are being used A 2013 report found that, the most common uses of funds described in application proposals were for smaller classes, longer class periods, additional planning time, more training opportunities. Educators stated they would like to see an increase in contact time with students, more planning time, more professional development, and more state resources and support. New Mexico Fine Arts and Education Act Program Plan and Evaluation-Year 10, 2013 The 23-24 application submissions reflect creative uses of program funds including: purchasing diverse instruments, expand programs to include ceramics/kilns, film/media arts, support the integration of theatre, dance, and visual arts into other content areas, purchase of digital art software, purchase of materials to help meet the core arts standards, support for special learning experiences, organizing to host PD, purchase technological specialty supplies to integrate coding and art, etc 18
