A one-page handout summarizing our findings when we analyzed data on arts courses, enrollment and teachers that was reported by school districts to the California Department of Education (CDE).
Since 2002, when the Blueprint was adopted, much progress has been made toward achieving its vision and many new partners have been engaged in the process. 
These Arts Education Performance Indicators (AEPI) document the status of arts education in each of the County’’s 82 school districts. As the first ongoing examination of arts education in Los Angeles County, this report provides a framework to evaluate self-reported school district data on critical success factors for arts education.
Los Angeles County Regional Blueprint for Art presents a comprehensive series of policy changes, educational initiatives, and establishment of a new infrastructure to promote systemic and balanced provision of the arts, and identifies the roles of key stakeholders. The Blueprint proposes that systemic change can only occur through the cooperative participation of all stakeholders and by working to develop supportive policy and action at each level of involvement.
Arts in Focus: Los Angeles Countywide Arts Education Survey is the baseline study of the state of arts education in the most populous county in the nation.
