Visual and Performing Arts

Arts Banner

  We are committed to educating the whole child. Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) is an integral part of a high-quality, well-rounded educational foundation. CCCOE supports districts as they implement VAPA content standards, integrate VAPA into core curriculum, and develop STEAM programs that endeavor to engage all students.

Our services include:

* Support for customized high-quality Professional Learning.
* Coaching and Leadership support with Arts and Music in Schools Funding implementation.
* Facilitating a CCCOE Arts Convening, a countywide collaboration with representatives from districts throughout, focused on relevant updates from federal and state agencies and improving teaching and learning.

Prop 28 Arts and Music in Schools Funding

On November 8, 2022, California voters approved Proposition 28: The Arts and Music in Schools (AMS) Funding Guarantee and Accountability Act. The measure required the state to establish a new, ongoing program supporting arts instruction in schools beginning in 2023–24.  CCCOE supports districts in strategic arts planning through regular Arts Convenings with district arts leaders.  For related resources, please follow the Prop 28 Arts and Music in Schools Funding link in the Quick Links section of the website.
