Proposition 28

IUSD Expand Arts Education
On November 8, 2022, California voters approved Proposition 28: The Arts and Music in Schools Funding Guarantee and Accountability Act. The measure requires the state to establish a new, ongoing program supporting arts instruction in schools beginning in 2023–24. The amount of funding available each fiscal year for the Arts and Music in Schools (AMS) program will be one percent of the K–12 portion of the Proposition 98 funding guarantee provided in the prior fiscal year, excluding funding appropriated for the AMS program. For Inglewood Unified School District, the estimated allocation for the 2023-24 year is $1,270,047.
Prop 28 requires that funding be allocated and spent at each school to increase access to the arts and music. School allocations are outlined below:
School Allocation
Bennett-Kew P-8 Leadership Academy of Excellence $78,555
Beulah Payne P-8 STEAM Academy $105,596
Centinela TK-8 Elementary $96,849
City Honors International Preparatory High $52,326
Crozier Middle School $53,342
Frank D. Parent TK-8 $57,096
Highland Elementary $75,888
Hudnall Elementary $68,118
Inglewood Continuation High $14,851
Inglewood High $137,657
Kelso Elementary $69,874
La Tijera K-8 Academy of Excellence Charter $100,154
Morningside High School $88,372
Oak Street TK-8 $86,415
Woodworth-Monroe TK-8 Academy $110,976
Worthington TK-6 Elementary $73.678

Proposition 28 requires a minimum of 80% of each school's allocation to be spent on staffing (certificated or classified district employees).  The district developed a Proposition 28 Plan Template for schools to  use. The template required schools to respond to the following:
  • Program objectives and goals
  • Program description
  • A collaborative process to identify how students, staff, and families were involved in determining how the funds would be spent
  • Program evaluation
  • Budget
School plans are submitted to the County Administrator for approval.  Funds that are not expended in the current year will be carried forward at each school site for the 2024-2025 year.
