Join colleagues to hear the latest updates on new funding streams for school-based arts education.

On November 8, 2022, voters passed Proposition 28 which is poised to provide roughly $1 billion annually to California public schools for arts education beginning in 2023-24. Along with the governor’s approval of the Arts, Music, and Instructional Materials Block Grant (AB 185) last summer, this funding offers new opportunities to support equitable access to arts education for students in schools in Los Angeles County.

Gather with school district arts coordinators and arts providers from across the County to hear the latest information regarding Prop 28 and the Instructional Materials Block Grant. We will explore implications for school districts, charters, and community arts organizations.

Jeannine Flores, Arts & STEAM Coordinator, LACOE and Chair, Create CA, will share funding updates and co-facilitate peer group break out discussions.
