Research and data continue to reinforce that a high quality education that includes the arts positively impacts students, including increased student engagement, achievement, attendance, and graduation rates. Join us in exploring how the arts can transform teaching and learning in the continuation school environment.

California statewide partners have joined together as the Create CA coalition to be solution partners with schools, districts and county offices to implement the state Education Code requirement for providing visual and performing arts instruction to all students. With one out of seven jobs in California now in the creative industries, the integration of the arts into a whole child curriculum has never been more urgent. The alignment with social/emotional priorities is impactful and exciting for school transformation. This interactive presentation will include a data walk, real strategies and next steps, as well as resources available to move forward with an integrated curriculum for all students. Planning partners include the California Department of Education, CCSESA (California County Superintendents Educational Services Association), California Alliance for Arts Education and the Alameda County Office of Education.
