When talking with someone who doesn’t have kids in our city’s public schools, I’m sometimes reminded that some people assume we don’t offer arts and music education. We do, at every grade level, in multiple disciplines.

In fact, we’ve been growing our arts programs for years. And we recently received a huge boost in our plans to further develop arts and music offerings to all students in the San Francisco Unified School District.

On Nov. 8, San Francisco voters approved $100 million to kickstart development of a new SFUSD Arts Center, including a new home for the Ruth Asawa School of the Arts, to preserve and promote music and art. That will be added to the tens of millions already raised, with plans for more private and public investments to come.
