TRAINING: Advocating for Student Health & the Arts
Advocating for Student Health & the Arts: Getting the Arts into Your District’s LCAP
As students process the trauma of the pandemic, the arts are not a luxury; they are an essential tool for recovery. Arts education not only decreases feelings of anxiety, depression, and isolation but also positively impacts all-around academic performance. Now is the time to communicate with your school district leadership about the need to include the arts in your Local Control & Accountability Plan. Join Arts for LA, Create CA and the California Alliance for Arts Education for a webinar that will:
*Provide a brief overview of the LCAP process and document
*Present the compelling argument for including the arts in the LCAP as a key strategy to support student health
*Share the experience of a district administrator who successfully worked to include the arts education in the LCAP to support social emotional learning
Advocates will walk away from this interactive session with concrete tools and next steps to increase arts education offerings in their school district.
