Arts Education Master Plan

The Napa Valley Unified School District (NVUSD) Arts Education Master Plan (AEMP) is a five-year, visual and performing arts initiative to provide opportunity, access and equity to all students, TK-12. The AEMP is the framework for this transformational public school district and private community partnership to continue collaboration with the design and support of an expanded sequential and standards-based, TK-12 curriculum in the disciplines of instrumental music, choral music, visual arts, theatre, dance and media arts. All instruction will be supported by relevant professional development and monitored by eff ective assessments and evaluations. The AEMP is in alignment with, and supports, the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).
