About Kennedy Partners

PiE Banner

As a Kennedy Center Partners in Education team, Chautauqua Institution, Chautauqua Lake Central School and Jamestown Public Schools present professional development workshops in Arts Integration. These workshops bring Kennedy Center national workshop leaders to help local educators learn new strategies toward achieving student learning goals. The teaching strategies introduced integrate the performing and visual arts with other core areas such as reading, math and science. Participating educators receive professional development credit towards their certification goals, as approved by their district. New in 2018-19, this program is being extended into Erie County school districts, in partnership with Erie 1 BOCES and support provided by the John R. Oishei Foundation.
