CASE Criteria for Elementary Fine Arts

  • The criteria for fine arts were developed with the help of Jeff King (Director of Fine Arts), Gayla Lawrence (Assistant Director of Fine Arts), and Dr. Laina McDonald (Division Director of Student Support Services).  Information concerning fine arts was collected via a survey distributed using Survey Monkey.  The survey was sent to fine arts instructors at each campus and asked questions relevant to the criteria developed.  Campus criteria were split between elementary, middle school, and high school campuses due to the different programs in place at each level.  Each Fine Arts area (e.g., art, music, band, theater, etc.) was given a rating which was in turn given a number (Unacceptable = 1; Acceptable = 2; Recognized = 3; and Exemplary = 4).  The overall campus rating was the average of all area ratings.  When converting ratings for the CASE system, a score of Exemplary was converted to an A, a score of Recognized was converted to a B, and an acceptable score was converted to a C.  Should overall scores fall below a C grade, they were rated on a case by case basis to determine grade (e.g., either a D or an F).
