ACM Gateway to Educational Testing Program

Proposition 28

• On November 8, 2022, Californians overwhelmingly passed Proposition 28, bringing a windfall of arts education funding to California schools. Advocates say the investment is long overdue, as arts education has declined in most districts — particularly those in low-income areas — for decades. While the state requires arts education in grades one to six and a year of arts education in high school, it’s up to districts to decide how to fund and implement it. The result has been an inconsistent patchwork of arts programs that leave many children with little exposure to music, dance, art, and other creative forms of expression.

Schools must spend 80% of the money on teachers and aides.

• The impact will be seen in schools and communities where Prop. 28 will create more than 15,000 additional jobs.

• Proposition 28 passed with more than 64% of the vote.


ACM GET Program

The American College of Music has developed a Master’s in Music Education Designed to meet the California Subject Exam for Teachers (CEST) Standards for a Single-Subject Credential in Music. Once accepted into the Master of Music in Education (MME) program, the faculty advisor and the student will design a course schedule that will entail all the subject matter and benchmarks included in the CSET 2-part exam. The student must possess a California Multiple Subject Credential to be accepted into the GET program.
