Arts Ed Data was Unveiled at AEABA Roundtable Meeting

Kathy Fleming of the Public Education Enrichment Fund (PEEF) office chose our February 3 convening of Arts Education Policy Roundtable as the venue to unveil data from a study of what arts education was offered at elementary schools in San Francisco for the 2015-16 school year.

You can look at the ReportSearchable Data File,  and Instructions for the Searchable Data File.  This data represents all arts programs funded through the Public Education Enrichment Fund, DCYF, and the Elementary Arts Program.

Not included in the data are arts programs that were provided by organizations or funded through other means. We will be working with Ms. Fleming to figure out how our members can best provide the data to fill in those gaps for this year and last year.

Data for middle and high schools can be found via the California Arts Education Data Project.

The SFUSD elementary school arts education data was presented to the San Francisco Board of Education on March 14, 2017 and the PEEF budget for 2017-18 was approved the following week.
