Theater for all at Collier County Public Schools
Collier County Public Schools is working to address educational equity over the next two days, specifically when it comes to performing arts.
All middle and high school students will have access to a theater program by next school year.
“When you look at schools and how we set up our arts programs, most common in the elective course offerings in schools are music and art. Most districts across the country make attempts for theater and dance,” said Skip Pardee, CCPS Coordinator of Fine Arts. “We are lucky to have great theater programs in some of our schools, but not all. So this effort with our theater teachers over the next two days is to help bring more equitable opportunities to our students across the district,” he added.
The district is teaming up with our local theater community to make it all possible.
