Applause for the Arts
With the ever-increasing emphasis placed on academic success and Common Core State Standards, the arts are often either neglected in a child’s education or simply relegated to the fi ght of sound educators in an attempt to create learning experiences for the whole child. Redondo Beach Unified School District (RBUSD) has continued this fi ght to support education for the whole child by celebrating the arts in schools and by protecting elementary arts education, including both visual and performing arts. This investment and commitment by the district continues through our middle and high school programs.
Not only is this a commitment by our school district to our students, but it is one that would not be possible with our tremendous community partnerships. The PTA’s Hands-on-Art program and support of quality music performances and assemblies for our students is first-rate. The Redondo Beach Educational Foundation’s support of arts education has resulted in more music instruction and field trips to art museums for thousands of our students. Our partnership with the Music Center Los Angeles provides professional teaching artists at all of our elementary schools.
The district will continue to collaborate with many community art organizations, tapping into the city’s valuable resources which are provided by its very own citizens. RBUSD applauds the support of Redondo Beach’s art community!
