Today, Arts Orange County (ArtsOC) posted the results of an arts education survey of candidates for School Board in 24 school districts with contested seats in Orange County in the November 2 election. Responses were received from 75 of the more than 120 candidates. ArtsOC conducted the survey as the local partner of the statewide California Alliance for Arts Education (CAAE), and in collaboration with the Fourth District PTA (PTA).
Every candidate for school board in every Orange County school district election this November was asked to respond to four questions about the role of the visual and performing arts in public schools. The survey is intended to help voters gain a deeper understanding of candidates’ views on this issue before the election.
