Counties on the Move Toward Arts Education for All Students
The CCSESA Arts Initiative is collaborating and partnering with other education and nonprofit organizations at all levels to tie arts education firmly into the core curriculum. This publication is a celebration of progress in improving and increasing arts education throughout the State of California through the 58 county offices of education. It is intended to provide a glimpse of the excellent work being done to bring instruction in dance, music, theatre, and the visual arts to all of the students in California’s public schools.
The document also serves another purpose. Along with county snapshots on arts education that will inform, inspire, and hopefully provoke you to get involved, the information reveals the emerging statewide arts education network and supporting infrastructure needed to provide leadership training, program planning, curriculum, professional development, and resources in arts education.
