The impetus for Arts for All's Leadership Fellows Program was a brainstorming session in July 2008 on how best to move the Arts for Allcollaborative toward its goal of restoring arts education into the core curriculum for each of Los Angeles County's 1.6 million public K-12 students. Session participants repeatedly circled back to Arts for All's need to engage school district leaders in order to be successful. The goal of the program, the first of its kind in the country, was to increase the capacity of school district leadership to advance quality, access and equity of arts education within their respective school districts. This report focuses on the work and results of the leadership fellows program in the 2009-2010 school year.
