10/24/2014; 9 minutes

The mission of the Visual And Performing Arts Department (VAPA) is to provide equal access to quality standards-based arts instruction in all district schools in dance, music, theatre and visual arts by competent, qualified teachers. Because the arts contribute to the total development of the individual and serve an important purpose in society, the VAPA Department is dedicated to:
• Expanding the role the arts play within our schools and lives;
• Creating and maintaining a network of community arts and cultural institutions that support all teachers and students in a standards-based arts curriculum; and,
• Addressing multiple intelligences, creative thinking, cultural diversity and special needs.
