  • Arts Equity Index (AEI)


    What is the Arts Equity Index (AEI)?

    The Arts Equity Index (AEI) categorizes all LAUSD schools (K-12) based on the scope of their provided arts instruction, arts resources, arts professional development, Title 1 Status, and Student Equity Index (Poverty, Foster Students, English Language Learners).

    How does the AEI provide equity to the schools?

    Assessments are taken to provide more equity of arts resources, and to ensure that all students have appropriate arts access and instruction.

    Expansion of LAUSD Arts through the AEI:

    • 45+ new arts teachers have been placed in the most underserved schools in the district.

    • Millions of dollars in arts allocations have been provided to all schools based upon their AEI category.

    • Arts Community Network partners are now serving high-need schools.

    • Re-alignment of existing arts personnel to provide more equitable arts instruction.
