Through Partners in Education (a national program of the John the_kennedy_center_web_logo.jpgF. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts), the UIS Performing Arts Center and Springfield Public Schools work together to offer professional development opportunities for area teachers.  Workshops are led by exemplary national teacher educators who specialize in arts and arts integration topics.  Springfield Public Schools will provide the necessary paperwork for ISBE credits at the end of each workshop.
