Arts Education Research Aligned to LCFF Priorities
Early in 2023, The California County Superintendents Arts Initiative worked with ArtsEdSearch, a project of the Arts Education Partnership, to review a new set of resources for California. The California LCFF Priority-Aligned Research project includes a new search filter that organizes search results around Local Control Funding Formula (LFCC) priorities 1, 4, 5, 6, and 8. It also includes a note on “How to Search”, and four printable PDFs including, an Introduction with notes for users and summary documents with takeaways from research related to Conditions of Learning, Student Outcomes, and Engagement.
As the new Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) cycle begins in 2024 we encourage LCAP writers to use these resources as they consider how to include arts education in LCAPs. The resources are also valuable for educators and families when advocating for increased access to arts education.
