Counties on the Move: Arts Education for All Students

The California County Statewide Arts Initiative collaborates and partners with other education and nonprofit organizations at all levels to help ensure equitable access to sequential standards-based arts education as part of the core curriculum. Counties on the Move is a periodic publication that celebrates progress made towards this goal through the 58 county offices of education. The latest edition is from 2020.

The publication represents work of the California County Superintendents of Schools and their staff through a state infrastructure of service and support connecting all school districts in California. The highlights in the publication were developed by county offices of education and reveal different approaches to meet the needs of our diverse student populations in California. They include snapshots of a wide array of arts education projects, programs, services, curriculum & professional development, and collaborations with school districts and arts education organizations throughout California.

The California County Superintendents Curricular and Improvement Support Committee (CISC) Arts Subcommittee and County Arts Leads continue to build capacity for arts education at the national, state, region, county, and local levels. Appreciation is extended to all those who provided content for the 2020 publication and to the leaders responsible for the rich tapestry of programs represented in it.
