RIDE and RIDOH have updated their guidelines regarding music and performances in our schools as of February 15, 2021.
Students across Rhode Island will now have more access to music education and music ensembles! We appreciate RIDE and RIDOH incorporating RIMEA's feedback and suggestions into the development of their guidance.
Due to the COVID pandemic this year, the All-State Festival itself will be in a much different format. RIMEA is planning a high-quality virtual ensemble experience for all accepted students, at NO COST to families.
RIMEA's All-State managers have been in contact (via email) with sponsors/students/parents with music and other details regarding the VIRTUAL performance.
RIMER Journal - Vol. 63 No. 1 is available online.
The Reopening Guidance Document was posted on June 30, 2020.
This document serves to provide guidance for the wide variety of music classes in the state, and to ensure alignment with the RIDE Reopening Framework. It is organized into 3 main sections: (1) Curriculum/Instruction and Supports; (2) Reopening Operations; and (3) Health and Safety with Classroom Set-Up and Materials. In addition, the following PK-12 music education teaching scenarios are addressed: General Music, Choral Ensembles, Instrumental Ensembles, and Middle & High School Classroom Music.
We hope this document is helpful to you as you and your school leadership teams start planning!
