Lompoc Unified is looking for an additional six Elementary Art teachers as the District is focusing on equitable arts education starting in Kindergarten through all of the elementary grades to better prepare students for a robust electives program in secondary. The positions will be structured so that two elementary sites share one theatre and one music teacher, all students getting one semester of each discipline weekly.
Collaboration around standards based instruction will happen among the four music and the four theater teachers, with some direction and collaboration from the district Arts Council. The expectation is students at all elementary campuses will have equitable instruction.
