Here is a brief summary of the new DOE website where you can access information:

WeTeach: All pedagogical resources are available on, including the Blueprints, Sample Curriculum Maps, Arts for Students with Disabilities Online Resource Compendium, and the Specific Considerations. Pedagogues can use the Search function to locate specific instructional materials. For easy reference, the Blueprints are directly linked as follows: Dance, Moving Image, Music, Theater, Visual Arts, and Leadership Manual.

InfoHub: The new InfoHub has information targeted at employees, partners, providers, and researchers. The InfoHub includes an employee-only site, similar to the former Intranet. For example, the Arts and Cultural Education Services Guide and the Arts Education Liaisons are available under “Partners and Providers,” and the Annual Arts in Schools Report is available under “Reports and Policies.”
