For the tenth consecutive year, Springfield School District has been honored with the Best Communities for Music Education designation from the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Foundation for its outstanding commitment to music education.
This accolade is awarded to districts that demonstrate outstanding achievement in efforts to provide music access and education to all students. This award program recognizes outstanding efforts by teachers, administrators, parents, and students who have made music education part of a well-rounded education.
To qualify for the Best Communities designation, Springfield answered detailed questions about funding, graduation requirements, music class participation, instruction time, facilities, and support for the music program. Responses were verified with school officials and reviewed by The Music Research Institute at the University of Kansas.
The NAMM Foundation is a nonprofit supported partly by the National Association of Music Merchants and its approximately 10,300 members worldwide. For more information about The NAMM Foundation, please visit www.nammfoundation.org.
Congratulations to the members of our SSD community who have made a decade of quality music education possible!
This honor truly reflects Pride in All Things.
