Island Trees School District designated a 2018 NAMM Foundation "Best Communities for Music Education"


Island Trees School District has been designated a 2018 "Best Communities for Music Education" in the United States of America by The NAMM Foundation, the National Association of Music Merchants, through an annual survey of school districts throughout the United States. The 19th Annual Best Communities for Music Education sought out school districts that have outstanding efforts by board of education members, community leaders, administrators, teachers, parents, and students who have made music education an important part of the core curriculum. The evaluation on schools and districts was based on funding, staffing of highly qualified teachers, commitment to standards, and access to music instruction for all students. 

 Out of thousands of school districts throughout the United States that participated in the NAMM Music Education Survey, 583 were designated as "The Best Communities for Music Education" for 2018, making this a high honor for Island Trees School District included in this list of top rated school districts.  School Districts that are chosen have a community that demonstrates commitment to providing a quality, enriching, and sound music education program for students and being committed to continuing support of the music education program within the school district.

Also being designated in 2004, 2008, 2010, 2015, 2016, and 2017, Island Trees has once again been formally recognized to be a community that values music education and the lifetime benefits that music education can bring to students. Congratulations to all at Island Trees Schools and especially the Island Trees community for a combined effort in support of music education for all students!
