Arts a Priority Says OC Superintendent of Schools Bill Habermehl

Orange County Superintendent of Schools, Bill Habermehl, has announced his candidacy for re-election, and his e-mail placed the arts as a high priority:

"Further, we must not overlook the arts. Our partnership with the Orange County Performing Arts Center and Arts Orange County allows enriching experiences for tens of thousands of students every year. The Alternative Education Program at the Orange County Department of Education and the Orange County Performing Arts Center, through an ongoing relationship, present "Summer at the Center." Alternative Education students gain an exposure and appreciation of the arts through the unique experience. The arts are essential for the creative nature of our students and will enhance their effectiveness in the 21st century workforce."
