LCSD Honored Again as One of the Best for Music Education
Tuesday, March 26, 2019 -
For the 10th time in 12 years, the NAMM Foundation has named the Liverpool Central School District one of the "Best Communities for Music Education."
Districts were chosen for this honor because they demonstrate outstanding achievement in their efforts to provide music access and education to all students. This year, 623 school districts from across the country received this honor.
LCSD offers a comprehensive music program that presents students with a wide range of opportunities to receive high quality instruction in classroom music, as well as join numerous performing ensembles. Several community groups also help support the district’s efforts to provide music education to all students.
The “Best Communities” designation recognizes collaborative, from-the-ground-up efforts for teachers, administrators, students and parents who continually work to keep comprehensive music education as an integral part of the core curriculum. These districts also lead the way with learning opportunities as outlined in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), which recommends music and the arts as important elements of a well-rounded education for all children.
The NAMM Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization supported in part by the National Association of Music Merchants and its nearly 10,300 members around the world, sponsored the survey. The foundation is dedicated to advancing active participation in music making across the lifespan by supporting scientific research, philanthropic giving and public service programs from the international music products industry.
