The Alliance supports policy change that places arts as core to the highest quality public education. Join us as we seek to create and motivate systemic change that will set the pathway to high quality, culturally relevant education that values each and every student, empowers teachers to operate at the highest professional levels, and work together to find joy in learning.

Local Control and Accountability Plans
The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) presents the opportunity for school districts to set new, locally-driven priorities, providing students who are often under-served in public schools with relevant curriculum for their authentic engagement. Arts-centered learning aligns with LCFF strategies and goals of collaboration in the community and contributes to a set of unique skills and outcomes that are shown to help students succeed and interact within the broader society.

Parents, students, and community members hold the keys to helping school districts develop meaningful Local Control and Accountability Plans! You can get involved in the LCAP planning process and help to make sure that the arts are a central part of education for every child, in every school, every day.
