California Arts Education’s Framework and Standards

CDE’s California Arts Education Framework Slide Decks

The PowerPoint slide decks are intended to be used to support the implementation of the 2020 Arts Education Framework for Public Schools, Transitional Kindergarten Through Grade Twelve (Arts Framework) and are made available by the California Department of Education.

The content was selected and refined in collaboration with leaders from California County Superintendents Educational Services Association (CCSESA) Statewide Arts Initiative and The California Arts Project (TCAP). Thank you to all CCSESA and TCAP leaders who contributed to this effort. A special thanks goes to Sarah Anderberg and Kris Alexander for their leadership and institutional support.

These slides can be customized for presentations. Users may wish to add graphics and additional slides for interactivity or perhaps break up the content into smaller chunks. The slides are mostly self-explanatory, but in some places the slide notes contain clarifying talking points, possible reflection questions, or notes that may be useful when facilitating a group. In their current state, the slides are accessible to screen readers and compliant with federal accessibility guidelines.
