The California County Superintendents, with a generous grant from The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, launched an Arts Education Initiative in early 2006. The California County Superintendents urges every school to weave the arts into the fabric of the curriculum providing all students with a comprehensive education, kindergarten through high school. The California County Superintendents support students, schools, districts, and communities to continuously improve student achievement in each of the state’s 58 counties through a fully equipped and comprehensive statewide network. With additional support from the California Arts Council and the Stuart Foundation, the work has continued to grow in counties and regions throughout California
