MeetingArts for LA, in partnership with Arts for All and the California Alliance for Arts Education, recently crafted and distributed an arts education template for the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) process. School districts throughout Los Angeles County are in the midst of crafting their LCAPs (see story above).

The Arts Education LCAP Template includes strategies and rationales district leadership can include to achieve state educational goals through arts education.  The LCAP document is essentially an annual plan outlining the various areas on which the district will focus in using Local Control Funding Formula money for student success.

Arts for LA is honored to announce this LCAP Template for Arts Education has been recognized by WestEd, a research, development, and service agency that works with education and other communities to promote excellence, achieve equity, and improve learning for children, youth, and adults. It was also recognized by the California School Boards Association as a valuable resource districts can use to complete their LCAP process effectively!
