Partners in Education
Since 1992 Bethel School District has participated in the Partners in Education program at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, our nation’s performing arts center in Washington DC. This partnership is designed to assist arts organizations throughout the nation to develop and/or expand educational partnerships with their local school systems, establishing or expanding professional development programs in the arts for teachers.
Bethel’s Partnership Team includes Tacoma Arts Live and neighboring school districts – Tacoma Public Schools and Puyallup School District. Our Partners in Education team provides professional development programs in the arts for our teachers, follow-up consultation and annual meetings to assist teams in their continued development.
