School Accountability Report Card - SARC

Proposition 28

  • Background: 

    On November 8, 2022, California voters approved Proposition 28: The Arts and Music in Schools Funding Guarantee and Accountability Act (AMS). The measure requires the state to establish an ongoing program supporting arts instruction in schools beginning in the 2023-2024 school year.  The amount of funding available each fiscal year for the AMS program will be one percent of the K-12 portion of the Proposition 98 funding guarantee provided in the prior fiscal year, excluding funding appropriated for the AMS program. 

    Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) with more than 500 pupils must expend at least 80% of the funds to employ certificated or classified employees to provide arts education and the remaining funds for training supplies, curriculum, professional learning, materials, and arts educational partnership programs. Guidance provided by the California Department of Education articulates that schools may pool resources to help facilitate inter-school programs.

    Regulations pertaining to Proposition 28 require local input from administrators, teachers, and parents in the development of programs with choice that best serve students in their local community. In Riverbank Unified School District (RUSD), the Arts Education Committee was formed in the spring of 2023 to create an arts strategic plan. This plan has served as a guide to stakeholders in determining actions for AMS programs aligned to the district’s vision for arts education.  

    Each district is required to submit an annual report to be posted on the school district’s and Department of Education’s websites that details the number of full time equivalent teachers, classified personnel, and teaching aides; the number of pupils serviced; and the number of school sites providing arts education programs with such funds.
