For School Districts

Arts for All works with LA County school districts to increase the quality, quantity and equity of arts instruction in their schools. Upon joining the Arts for All network, school districts are eligible for a variety of support services.

All services are offered free of charge.

Countywide Network

Arts for All brings together leaders and practioners to learn, collaborate and network. We partner with regional organizations to offer a range of learning opportunities for school district stakeholders, from teacher professional development to convenings for education foundations and school board members.

Accessing our network will help increase visibility of your successes. Your district’s efforts will be prominently featured as part the story of arts education in the County.

District Liaison

Arts for All dedicates a staff person dedicated to supporting your district. Whether your district is facing challenges or would like to learn about trends in the field, your district liaison will connect you to colleagues across the County. If you have questions about promising practices in arts education or you are looking for learning opportunities, our staff will point you toward helpful resources.  

Strategic Planning Coach

Arts for All offers coaching support for school districts to create and update strategic arts plans. Based on the needs of your district, Arts for All experts provide customized coaching services to support the long-term implementation of arts education. Plans lay out strategic directions for a five-year period. The typical planning schedule runs from the fall through spring and includes data collection.  

Funding for Implementation

School districts in the Arts for All network with strategic plans for arts education that have been formally adopted by their local school boards are eligible to apply for funding. Matching grants offer financial support to assist school districts in achieving key action items identified in their district arts plans. 

Professional Development

Arts educators and district arts leads can build their capacity and broaden their impact through our professional development opportunities. See the events page to register.
