The California Arts Project (TCAP)
The California Arts Project (TCAP) is a collaborative, statewide network of classroom teachers and university scholars with the mission of improving teaching and learning in dance, music, theatre, visual arts, and in arts, media, and entertainment. As the state subject matter project for the visual and performing arts and career arts, media, and entertainment, TCAP's network of teacher leaders advocate for and strive to ensure access for all California students to a sequential, comprehensive, and excellent standards-based arts and career education. An education that includes content, literacy and process-rich learning in the arts will prepare California students to lead creative and collaborative communities and workplaces across California.
Create CA is a coalition of dedicated and innovative leaders who understand that together we have the power to create lasting change for every California student. Our mission is to ensure ALL students are able to reach their full potential by advancing an education model that promotes creativity and the arts for the 21st century workforce. http://www.createca.net
The California County Superintendents Educational Services Association supports the belief that every student needs a full, comprehensive curriculum. A high-quality education in the arts is an integral component of a comprehensive curriculum. Through a system of 11 service regions, CCSESA provides the organizational mechanism for the 58 County Superintendents of Schools to design and implement statewide programs to identify and promote quality, cost-effective, educational practices and services, and provide support to school districts. The CCSESA Regional Arts Leads serve as designated Regional Leads for the CCSESA Statewide Arts Initiative (www.ccsesaarts.org). Region 2's Regional Arts Lead is Jennifer Spangler (firstname.lastname@example.org).
