Overview
The Marin County Office of Education supports 19 school districts and 33,200 students in grades TK through 12. Poverty in Marin schools mirrors trends in the broader county — clusters of high-poverty schools in a few neighborhoods, which also tend to be much more racially diverse than the county as a whole. Schools with the highest proportion of low-income students also have lower levels of per pupil spending. The Teaching in and Through the Arts project is a county-wide effort, supported by the Marin Community Foundation and led by Marin County Office of Education staff, to re-invest in arts education in Marin. A first-time Hewlett Foundation grant will kick off arts education strategic planning, as well as support mapping of arts education access throughout the county. Funds will also support a collaboration with the Alameda County Office of Education (also a Hewlett grantee) for arts-based teacher professional development.

for the Teaching In and Through the Arts project  
The Marin County Office of Education supports 19 school districts and 33,200 students in grades TK through 12. The Teaching In & Through The Arts project is a county-wide effort, supported by the Marin Community Foundation and led by Marin County Office of Education staff, to re-invest in arts education in Marin. Poverty in Marin schools mirrors broader trends in the county, where lower per pupil spending correlates to lower levels of arts access and participation in schools. The Teaching In & Through The Arts program is intended to ensure that arts resources reach those schools. A first-time Hewlett Foundation grant will kick off arts education strategic planning, as well as support mapping of arts education access throughout the county. Funds will also support a collaboration with the Alameda County Office of Education (a Hewlett Foundation grantee) for arts-based teacher professional development.
