Napa has a unique story to tell. In 2013, Arts Council Napa Valley (ACNV) created the ACNV Education Alliance to assess the state of arts education in Napa County. This public-private alliance after producing an arts education assessment commissioned the drafting of a Napa Arts Education Master Plan, which presents a comprehensive framework for the development of TK-12 sequential, standards-based arts education curriculum. Since then, NVUSD has hired a full-time Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) Coordinator, and new curriculum and programs are being developed to fulfill the promise of the assessment and the Arts Education Master Plan.
