On October 9, 2012 the LAUSD Board Members voted unanimously to approve Supporting Educational Equity, Student Achievement and Mastery of 21st Century Skills through Arts at the Core resolution. In response, on June 14, 2013, the Arts Education and Creative Cultural Network Plan was presented to the Board Members.
The Arts Education and Creative Cultural Network Plan’s mission was:
➢ To devise a forward thinking plan that is collaborative, sustainable, and accountable for results – one that will carefully manage all resources to place more arts education opportunities and creative cultural experiences in reach of every student and their families, both inside and outside of the classroom.
At this site you will find many resources: professional development opportunities, student showcases, research and policy updates. You will also find links to our nationally acclaimed Arts Instructional Guides in all four art forms. They are designed to support arts education taught by arts specialists, classroom teachers and arts community partners. Use them to bring your curriculum to life.
