All students in California deserve the opportunity to enroll in high quality arts education curriculum that will provide them with the important skills they need to succeed in today’s competitive workforce.
Up until now, we lacked the tools to show us where (and how) arts education is offered across the state. That’s why Create CA, the California Department of Education and the Arts Education Data Project, have joined together to provide a new suite of tools to help increase participation and ensure student success in arts education.
The Data Project is designed to increase participation in arts education across the state by analyzing and reporting school-level data on arts education courses and grades 6 through 12 enrollment. It provides important information to education leaders, teachers and parents about levels of access to and enrollment in arts courses in schools.
