The Orange County Music and Arts Administrators (OCMAA) is dedicated to quality, equity and access to arts programs for all students which stem from comprehensive district arts plans, dynamic community collaborations, and inspired, informed leadership.
OCMAA is a network of district leaders, community arts educators, business, and parents. Monthly OCMAA meetings are a forum for learning, solving common problems, communicating information, and promoting arts education for all students.
OCMAA will meet on Wednesdays at 9:00-11:00 a.m. District coordinators meeting will follow at 11:00 a.m. Below is the schedule for this year's meetings:

Orange County Music and Arts Educators Awards
has made the decision to cancel the OCMAA Awards and 1000 Pieces
of Art. OCDE, is committed to finding new ways to celebrate
students and teachers in the arts during and after this time.
To that end, and thanks
to the idea and input from County VAPA Coordinators, I’m excited to announce a
new social media campaign, specific to Orange County. The goal is to spotlight
the great work you all are doing and the resulting work students are creating.
Our theme will be:
Anyone can use #OCArts4All for
students doing arts activities at home
Pictures/videos of staff
creating activities and leading students in video lessons
commentaries from students and parents
Videos of community
leader (mayors, principals, superintendents, etc.) participating in arts
Screenshots of VAPA Zoom
Please feel free to
share this communication and this hashtag.
celebrate how the Arts connect us at all times!
Together we will keep the
Arts Alive and Growing in Orange County!
