SMMUSD adopted an Arts Education Strategic Plan in Feb 2005 with the assistance of LA County’s program, Arts for All. One of the Goals for Arts for All is to assist school districts to develop sustainable arts educational plans for the implement of high-quality, multidiscipline, sequential curriculums. SMMUSD has utilized the Arts for All program to strengthen the arts education curriculum and artistic opportunities for the students of SMMUSD.
