Focus for the Week - Grade-Level Reading

Same as before, as we are continuing the conversation -
  • Are our students reading at grade-level?
  • How do we know? What data are we using to inform this?
  • What are we doing to address this?
If you don't know your students' baseline reading levels, then you should start planning on how you're going to collect accurate data in the next two weeks. From now until June, we would like to share with our ICEF Board any growth in students' reading levels.

  • April 7 - Join an all-day social media campaign to reach out to your located elected officials through social media to thank them for their continued public investment in arts and culture, to urge them to increase the resources to neighborhood arts centers, to remind them of the value of arts education in workforce development and of the need for a robust cultural infrastructure for the continued health and prosperity of Greater Los Angeles. The goal is to have every elected official - whether city council member or school board member - to hear from #ArtsVote advocates in all 81 school districts and 88 cities in Los Angeles County.
