Audio Dial In: 1 669 900 6833
Meeting ID: 852 8732 3152
Creative Arts Charter School engages K-8 students in an equitable and academically rigorous education through arts integrated and interdisciplinary study. Our public school community cultivates curiosity and joy. Students are empowered to develop a sense of self, responsibility, and advocacy to effect and create change in their communities and the world.
Our Essential Question: What will it take for us – individually and collectively - to remain urgently, relentlessly committed to interrupt adult-centered and Eurocentric (or white supremacy cultural) practices in our school and hold ourselves and each other accountable for anti-racist, art-centered classrooms rooted in love that insist on the success and sense of belonging of our Black students and our students with IEPS?
