Lynwood Unified School District (LUSD) is a K-12 district located just west of Downey and north of Compton. It encompasses 12 elementary schools, three middle schools, and three high schools. The district prioritizes arts education, and district administrators have found the Arts Ed Profile a valuable tool in helping them advocate for increased arts education.
The Arts Ed Profile is aimed at understanding the quality, quantity, and equity of arts education offered in K-12 schools across LA County. Here are a few success stories from both school districts and funding organizations.
Congratulations to the recipients of the 2018 California Department of Education (CDE) Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SAEE) grants! This year, three of the Los Angeles County recipients will be using the funding to support arts education. Pasadena Unified and Lancaster school districts join the Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE) in redoubling their commitment to the arts.
