In our State of the Arts in Chicago Public Schools baseline report, we cite 415 active CPS partners in the 2012-13 school year, and note their important role in the arts education eco-system. Partner programs help schools and teachers exponentially expand the depth and breadth of learning for students. This month we begin Profiles in Partnership, which will become a frequent feature of our e-letter, with Lyric Opera of Chicago.
Lyric’s longstanding educational programming includes offerings that range from backstage tours and performances to curriculum-based school residencies and teacher workshops. In the 2012-13 school year, Lyric worked with 89 CPS schools in 48 different communities across every CPS network.
