Arts in Education- In 2015, the Berkeley Arts Providers School Partnership was created to identify disparities in access to arts programming within the district’s elementary after school programs in order to create and implement a plan which connects UC Berkeley, the Civic Arts Commission (CAC), local arts organizations, and the Berkeley Unified School District (BUSD) to ensure access, equity, and quality across the after school programs.  

 

A Case Study of Arts Enrichment in Extended Learning Programs 2016-2017- The purpose of the Berkeley Arts providers School Partnership was to identify disparities in access to arts programming within the district’s elementary [and middle school] afterschool programming in order to create a plan, which connects UC Berkeley, The Civic Arts Commission (CAC), local arts organizations, and the Berkeley Unified School District (BUSD) to ensure access, equity, and quality across the afterschool programs. At the completion of year one, research found that were great inequities within afterschool programming among schools according to funding and resources. After reapplying and receiving a grant for year two, one of BAPSP’s priorities is to create a case study to identify how a school within the district has mitigated inequities in its afterschool programming.
