 Arlington Teachers Complete Kennedy Center Training Program
The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts award 12 APS teachers Certificates of Study for their participation in the Kennedy Center’s Changing Education Through the Arts (CETA) program. The teachers are part of a group of 116 Washington, DC area educators that will recognized at a special awards ceremony and reception on Fri, April 29, at 5:30 p.m. at the Kennedy Center.

Through the Kennedy Center’s CETA program, teachers study with their colleagues in courses and workshops led by expert teaching artists and arts educators. They learn about the arts and ways to integrate the arts into their teaching through a range of programs designed to meet their varying needs, interests, and experience.

More in-depth programs take place in Kennedy Center partner schools that have committed to a school-wide focus on arts integration. Professional learning programs developed and refined locally through this program are shared nationally through the Kennedy Center's Partners in Education program. The Certificate of Study recognizes educators who have continued their professional learning in the arts.
