Bi-monthly Arts Education Policy Roundtable: The purpose of this forum is to provide timely information for arts provider organizations and individuals about activities and policies of agencies that support arts education programming in the Bay Area.

This month, we will be joined by Annie Yalon and Matthew Travisano. Yalon is Work Based Learning Systems Specialist for Career Technical Education at the San Francisco Unified School District. SFUSD is in need of more arts organization partners to help support work-based learning throughout the year, especially in media arts, the largest CTE pathway in the district.

Travisano is CTE Coordinator at Oakland School of the Arts where he is also Artistic Director and Chair of the School of Theatre.  

San Francisco public schools currently has 7 Media Arts Pathways and 3 Performing Arts Pathways across 8 different high schools in the District. In addition to paid internship opportunities, the district is looking for organizations and businesses who would be willing to host students for job shadows.
