• Arts Learning

    The Arts Learning department is dedicated to advancing equity and opportunity in arts education for all students. In partnership with educators, administrators, and arts advocates, we empower students to develop as artistically literate citizens, while gaining an understanding of self and community.  The Alameda County Office of Education provides ongoing arts education support in leveraging resources and partnerships to assist districts and other county offices in the following areas:

    • Build leadership capacity for arts education in California public schools by engaging with state, regional, local leaders and educators, and community members to build equitable student access to arts education in California schools. Support regional capacity building with other county arts leaders in the region.
    • Provide arts professional learning curriculum, assessment, programmatic support and/or technical assistance to schools, districts, and county offices of education aligned to the California Arts Standards and increase awareness of the Arts Education Framework and the Resources for Implementation Website.
    • Increase student access to arts learning throughout California through advocacy, partnership building, and collaborations. Support arts learning through visibility efforts such as student internships, showcases, and exhibits; provide information and research on the benefits of arts learning; engage in strategic planning, data analysis; and building arts networks with partner organizations and other county offices of education.
