Program Description

An arts and music education plays a significant role in a student’s academic achievement. Students who have the opportunity to take music and art classes do better overall in their studies than students who do not have these same opportunities. For example, there is a strong correlation between a student’s music education and their understanding of math.

Beyond the pragmatic benefit that arts and music provide, there is the sheer joy of being able to learn how to play an instrument, write a song, draw a picture, or simply express one’s artistic creativity.

That is why we are again offering the Bill Bradley Arts Mini-Grant and School-Wide Grant applications.

Since the inception of the West Contra Costa Public Education Fund, providing resources to our teachers and students in the classroom has remained a central focus of our organization. That is why we are pleased to announce that the Ed Fund will be awarding nearly $22,000 this year in Arts & Music grants from our Brad Bradley Bequest for the following 30 projects across our district:
