Professional Development


Teachers and administrators will receive professional development in preparation for the implementation of the strategic plan. Preparation might include:

  • Knowledge and understanding of the California visual and performing arts (VAPA) content standards
  • Writing of standards-based curriculum and courses
  • Establishing benchmarks based on the VAPA standards
  • Theory and implementation of Arts Integration
  • Instructional Strategies inclusive of 21st Century Skills and the 4 C’s (Creativity, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, Communication)
  • Articulation with the California Common Core Standards

Through Arts Empower San Diego, the San Diego County Office of Education will support districts by:

  1. Seeking financial support for the professional development.
  2. Working with The California Arts Project (TCAP) to provide the professional development.
  3. Providing professional development at the county level for district administrators, teachers, arts partners, and parents.
