Wisconsin Music Strong (WMS) coalition was created in response to education shifts caused by COVID-19 related issues. WMS will provide a place for all persons, organizations, associations, and businesses to receive accurate, up-to-date state and national education information as Wisconsin school leaders create 2020-21 school models that ensure access for students to a well-rounded education inclusive of music and the arts.
WMS coalition organizations affirm the following:
- Music and arts education for Wisconsin students is an important part of a well-rounded education already supported by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), Wisconsin Administrative Code PI-8, and Wisconsin 2019-Act 85.
- Music and arts education support the critical social and emotional well-being of Wisconsin students, and this is true both through distance learning or in person.
- Music and arts education nurture the creation of a welcoming school environment where students are able to express themselves in safe and positive ways.
- Music and arts education is part of the mission or belief statements of your organization, association, or business.
