The California County Superintendents supports the belief that every student needs a full, comprehensive curriculum. A high-quality education in the arts, including the subject areas of dance, music, theatre, and the visual arts is an integral component of a comprehensive curriculum. The arts play an essential role in the daily lives of California citizens and influence expression, creativity, and imagination as it relates to the human experience. An understanding and appreciation of the arts, as well as the ability to participate in the arts, are key attributes of an educated person.
