JPS Partners With Chautauqua Institution & Chautauqua Lake Schools to Participate in the Kennedy Center’s Partners in Education Program

Deborah Sunya Moore (vice president and director of programming, Chautauqua Institution), Jennifer Davis (music teacher, Chautauqua Lake School) and Tim Mains (superintendent, Jamestown Public Schools) pose in front of a sculpture of the 35th U.S. president at the John F. Kennedy Center Partners in Education Institute in April.

Chautauqua Institution, Chautauqua Lake Central Schools and Jamestown Public Schools are only one of 10 members of the Partners in Education program of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Washington, D.C. in the country. Selected because of their demonstrated commitment to improvement of education in and through the arts, the Partnership Team participates in collaborative efforts to make the arts integral to education.

Chautauqua’s participation in the program is part of a larger arts education initiative spearheaded by Moore to more deeply engage with and serve Chautauqua County students and teachers through year-round programs.
