The California County Superintendents Educational Services Association Arts Initiative

believes that the visual and performing arts are an integral part of a comprehensive curriculum and are essential for learning in the 21st century. All California students—from every culture, geographic region and socio-economic level—deserve quality arts learning in dance, music, theatre, and visual/media arts as part of the core curriculum.
