The Georgia Standards of Excellence have been created in Media Arts, Visual Art, and Theatre and are voluntary for the 2017-18 school year. Full adoption begins in the 2018-19 school year.
The standards were revised based on public feedback, including a 60-day public comment period in the spring of 2016. K-12 fine arts teachers, postsecondary educators, school district fine arts coordinators, business and industry representatives, parents, and fine arts organizations were represented on the committees that drafted and reviewed the standards for Media Arts, Theatre Arts, and Visual Arts.
The Georgia Performance Standards are still in effect for Music and Dance which will go through the revision process in the 2017-18 school year.
