K-12 Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA)

  • Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) began their adoption committee engagement work in 20/21, and through this work, made the decision to complete their Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum (GVC) in each of their content areas (Music, Visual Arts, Dance and Theatre) prior to adopted new curricula. Over the 21/22 school year, they will be completing their GVC work, and during the 22/23 school year they will be exploring new VAPA Instructional Resources. Materials will be rolled out districtwide in 23/24 school year.
