The Visual and Performing Arts Program of BCOE....

  • Brings new resources to districts/schools/classrooms to expand existing arts education programs and create new ones;

  • Provides professional learning opportunities to all K-12 teachers who wish to integrate their curriculums with arts learning
  • Supports arts education strategic planning efforts directly in districts and through the Butte County Arts Education Strategic Planning Committee
  • Facilitates Teaching Artist placements in schools to teach the Arts or to collaborate with classroom teachers to integrate

Areas of special focus in recent years include support for:

    *Rural Schools to expand arts education especially in K-8 schools
    *Arts integration as an approach to increasing standards-based arts education
    *Increasing student access to Social Emotional Learning (SEL) through the Arts in which SEL is an inherent component 
Our mission is to help districts, schools, and teachers provide every PreK-12 student in Butte County, equity, access and excellence in arts education because we believe every student deserves the opportunity to create, to perform, to learn about and to experience the arts in all forms including music, theater, dance and the visual arts!
