Please see Documents section for important attachment on Funding for Arts in Schools.  Essentially, the attached document explains that California's new budget allows school districts to transfer block grant money set aside for art and music to other programs, as they deem necessary.  However, the boards of education in each district must hold public meetings before making the decisions.  Parents who do not want this block grant money transferred out of art and music must be vocal and speak up at the meetings.  Please forward to everyone you know who has kids in AUSD schools.
 
The info. below lists when/where and AUSD Board of Education meets and also lists the board members.  Now is the time to let the board know how you feel about arts education funding.
 
The Alameda Board of Education meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month, at 6:30 p.m.
