Turnaround Arts Comes to SAUSD
At Willard Intermediate and Sierra Preparatory Academy, arts education is taking center stage as a result of their participation in Turnaround Arts, a signature program of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities (PCAH) and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Turnaround Arts empowers high-need schools with arts resources, training and arts integration across all subject areas as a strategy to address broader school challenges. Nigel Lythgoe, creator and judge of the Fox Television show, "So You Think You Can Dance" is Willard Intermediate's Turnaround Artist and has built a rapport with the school community as a result, even judging the school’s talent show in 2017.
