Westport Schools Join Playhouse in Kennedy Center Program

The Westport Public School District has joined the Westport Country Playhouse and the Greenwich School District as a partner in The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts Partners in Education program.

“The Westport Public School District will enable our partnership to reach a greater number of teachers and therefore students through and with the arts,” said Debra Baron, Westport Country Playhouse director of education. 

The purpose of the partnerships is the establishment or expansion of professional development programs in the arts for all teachers.

“By welcoming the Westport Public School District into our existing Kennedy Center Partners in Education team, we will increase the number of teachers and students whose classroom experience is enriched by the involvement of creative engagement throughout their curriculum,” Baron said.
