Lincoln, NE (AP) - The State Board of Education has approved Nebraska's first fine arts standards in music, visual, performing and media arts.

The standards set expectations for what schools should teach in each of the areas.

The Lincoln Journal Star says the Nebraska Arts Council provided a $46,000 grant to the state Department of Education to develop the standards.

The standards set out broad concepts for each area and include specific requirements in grade units: kindergarten through second grade, third through fifth grade, sixth through eighth grade, ninth through 12th grade.

The fine arts standards have not been made a part of Rule 10, which state-accredited schools must follow. Math, reading, social studies and science are part of Rule 10.
