Arts Schools Network


Dear Valued ASN Members, Friends and Partners,

We realize your inbox is inundated with messages regarding COVID-19 and its implications on you, your community, and the health of our nation are very real and constantly changing. Here at Arts Schools Network, we too are working diligently to understand the impact on our community and how we can support you during this time. 

This is an unprecedented moment in our history, and as we all navigate this continually evolving situation regarding Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), our priority is the health and safety of our extended ASN family including our members, partners, and colleagues. At this time, we are closely monitoring updates from the CDC and state authorities surrounding COVID-19 and the guidelines and restrictions being put in place daily. We want to assure you that we are making the necessary adjustments internally to reflect the challenges facing all of us. 


Arts Schools Network 2020 Conference

At this time ASN continues to plan for our annual conference that will take place in Las Vegas, October 13-16, 2020. As circumstances surrounding the pandemic change and evolve, we will evaluate the measures put in place and carefully weigh future steps. We are coordinating our response with federal, state, and local officials and following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and other agencies. We are hopeful that our nation and communities will recover and that ASN will be able to continue to provide the resources and professional development at our conference, that you have all become dependent upon and that we have successfully delivered for over 37 years.

Conference Proposals and Exemplary Schools & Award Applications

We know you’ve got a lot on your plate right now and schools across the country are closing. This means you won’t have access to the resources and/or people you need to propose or submit your applications. Therefore, ASN is extending our conference proposal and application deadlines for Exemplary Schools and Awards to April 30, 2020. 


Let's Help Each Other

In times like these, we need each other. Don’t forget that ASN members have access to our online member portal and our community forum. Use the member portal to search for other members in your area, or share information and resources on the forum with other members. 
We’ve created a discussion board called “COVID-19 Response” with three forums: 
1.     COVID-19 Response (how you and your school community have responded to COVID-19)
2.     COVID-19 Resources (a place to share resources and tools that can help others)
3.     COVID-19 Questions (a place to pose questions to your peers and colleagues to get answers)

This is a difficult moment in our history.
