Description

Please join us at a special networking breakfast for school, community and business leaders to strengthen support for arts education in the Temecula Valley Unified School District.

The state budget crisis forced many districts to cut or eliminate arts programs in recent years. The California Alliance for Arts Education has launched Arts Now Communities, a program that supports local advocacy efforts in over fifty California communities. This event provides an important opportunity to bring leaders together in support of arts education, and your voice is critical in helping to build a sustainable Temecula Arts Now Community. We are proud to join the California Alliance and the Cultural Council to host this event.

Four years ago, the Temecula Valley Unified School District (TVUSD) started a district wide elementary Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) program, hiring qualified VAPA teachers to ensure that every student in K-5th grade receives a comprehensive education in the arts including music, dance, and visual arts. We are excited that the district recently adopted an Arts Plan, which was created and developed by a team that included VAPA teachers and community members. There is much work to be done to implement the plan and ensure that every TVUSD student receives a quality, sequential, and standards based arts education.

We hope you can participate in this breakfast conversation about the importance of creativity and innovation for the future of our students.

Matt Rahn, Mayor ProTem, City of Temecula
