The Office of Standards and Curriculum is available to provide professional development to teachers in their local area, either face-to-face or through videoconference or webinar (point-to-point/distance learning) technology. In order for the professional development to have as much impact as possible, for face-to-face interactions, groups need to include representation from at at least 5 districts, an entire county, or that contain at least 45 teachers. For point-to-point/distance learning technology interactions any size group can be accommodated.
It is a privilege of the State Department of Education to provide technical support for "Teachers Helping Teachers" an online sharing tool for teachers assessing the arts. This Web site is a growing compilation of arts instruction and assessment ideas designed to assist teachers, schools and districts as they determine the most effective way to evaluate arts instruction in their settings. Educators across Oklahoma are implementing Arts Assessment in Grades 3-8 in compliance with House Bill 1414. Oklahomans understand the value of arts education as a core discipline and in enhancing academic performance in other areas.
