Bringing Art to Schools is a local non-profit volunteer organization focused on providing a standards based, equitable arts education for all elementary students at LTUSD.
The Arts are considered by the U.S. Department of Education's Every Student Succeeds Act to be part of a well-rounded education. In January 2019, The State Board of Education adopted the California Arts Standards for Public Schools. The visual arts standards are designed to enable students to achieve visual arts literacy and develop technical artistic skills.
All of our students deserve to have access to a high-quality arts education that provides them with the skills they need to succeed in college, career and life. Arts learning is an essential component of a comprehensive education. Appreciating and participating in the arts promotes critical thinking, tolerance and empathy and supports overall academic achievement throughout pre-K-12 and beyond. Arts education is associated with higher attendance rates and graduation rates, and improved test scores and achievement in English language arts, literacy and math skills.
This program, serving all elementary students in LTUSD, is made possible through your generous donations. Thank you.
