For the 2009/2010 school year, the Music Center launched a district partnership designed to provide students with quality arts learning experiences that align with the California Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) Framework and Content Standards. The program also aimed to support key California arts education policy including arts-integrated professional development for teachers as well as provide support for district and school leaders in arts education. ETI developed a formative evaluation in order to assess the extent to which the program was meeting its goals and to provide timely feedback for program revision. Specifically, the evaluation addressed the ability of participating teachers to implement and assess anchor-work based arts lessons in the classroom; the effectiveness of principal and district leadership in providing support for the program, and the extent to which a sustainable infrastructure was developed to promote district-wide arts education implementation. ETI staff conducted classroom observations, interviews, and focus groups in order to assess the program’s ongoing effectiveness and develop a set of recommendations for program improvement. In the 2010/2011 school year the Music Center continued the district partnership. The evaluation for this time period focused on assessing teacher, school, district, and Music Center capacity to support the program as well as the effectiveness of the program for student learning. ETI developed a program-wide logic model as a blueprint to evaluate program capacity as well as outline anticipated short- and long-term outcomes for the AIP. ETI staff also conducted teacher surveys, principal and district leader interviews, and student focus groups in order to analyze the effectiveness of the program in meeting its goals. For the 2012 evaluation ETI used a retrospective evaluation design to document the AIP in its third year of implementation and examine the change in teacher practice and attitudes as a result of participation in program.
