New Pot Of Arts Education Funding Heads To Los Angeles Schools

Los Angeles school officials are giving out a new pot of money aimed at making sure students have better access to arts education.

Los Angeles Unified School District announced Monday that schools received more than a million dollars in new funding for arts education from the state. Every school got a piece of this $1 million pie, but for the first time schools lacking in arts education got a bigger slice.

Money went out based on student enrollment and the results of the district’s new Arts Equity Index, which was released this spring. That survey was used to figure out which schools were providing arts education and which weren’t — to help the district determine the greatest need.
