Sayville School District Again Named Among the Best Communities for Music Education
Seventeen Years and Sayville School District is Still Going Strong As Among "The Best Communities for Music Education."
The Award is presented by the NAMM Foundation
Renowned for being a District which values the arts, Sayville has again been honored with the “Best Communities for Music Education” designation in the USA in a nationwide survey by NAMM (the National Association of Music Merchants). The Sayville Music Education program first received this accolade in 2004 and has won it consecutively for the past twelve years.
NAMM’s Best Communities for Music Education designation, now in its 22nd year, is awarded to districts that demonstrate outstanding achievement in efforts to provide music access and education to all students.
To qualify for the Best Communities designation, Sayville Music Department answered detailed questions about funding, graduation requirements, music class participation, instruction time, facilities, support for the music program and community music-making programs. Responses were verified with school officials and reviewed by The Music Research Institute at the University of Kansas.
Congratulations, Sayville Music Department, for your long history of excellence in earning this national award!
