CCUSD Recognized for Excellence in Arts Education
Your donations to CCEF help to fund visual and performing arts programs at every CCUSD school. Because of CCEF’s longstanding commitment to supporting arts education for all students, we are thrilled to see the district being recognized for its excellence in providing strong arts education programming.
For the second year in a row, CCUSD received the NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) Best Communities for Music Education Award. This award recognizes and celebrates outstanding efforts by teachers, administrators, parents, students and community leaders for their commitment to music education, and efforts to assure access to music for all students as part of a well-rounded education.
In addition, Culver City High School was recently selected as a recipient of the California Exemplary Arts Education Award, one of only 33 schools statewide to receive this recognition.
The award honors schools for their steadfast dedication to arts education and celebrates successful efforts to engage students in arts through exposure to a variety of disciplines, with arts programs that play a powerful role in supporting wellness, bridging social divides, and expanding creativity and critical thinking in students.
“These honors are another recognition of the incredible arts-focused education we are providing to our students,” said Superintendent Leslie Lockhart. “Congratulations to our teachers, staff, administrators, and students who work so hard every day to make sure that we keep arts in the classroom. We are so grateful to have the funding support from CCEF to help make these opportunities possible in our schools.”
Is arts education important to you? Forty years ago a group of committed parents founded the Culver City Education Foundation to preserve arts education in Culver City schools. Government funding is not sufficient to cover the cost of these vital programs. Make your donation today to help sustain these opportunities for our students.
